Hogan's Alley (1925) is a silent film comedy produced and distributed by Warner Bros.. It was an early directing assignment for Roy Del Ruth and starred Monte Blue, Patsy Ruth Miller, and Ben Turpin. This film is a precursor to the sound film One Round Hogan, a later Monte Blue boxing vehicle.[1][2]


Although he wins the championship by a knockout, prizefighter Lefty O'Brien isn't a happy man because he broke his left hand on the jaw of his opponent, who ended up seriously hurt.

Lefty has a girlfriend, Patsy, but her father is opposed to their getting married. When she is treated for an injury by Dr. Franklin, he also attempts to sweep her off her feet. Lefty and her dad need to come to her rescue when she's trapped on a runaway train.


Preservation status

Hogan's Alley survives in an incomplete or abridged version in Archives du Film du CNC (Bois d'Arcy) France.[3]
