~Hogan's Alley~
1925
~Plot Synopsis~
Lefty O'Brien, a pugilist, becomes engaged to ex-tomboy Patsy Ryan against the wishes of her
father, Michael. They both live in an Irish-Jewish neighborhood on New York's East Side known as
"Hogan's Alley." Lefty defeats Battling Savage for the championship, breaking his left hand and
leaving his opponent close to death. Lefty seeks refuge from apprehension by the police, but
Michael turns out both Lefty and Patsy. Patsy is injured, and Michael calls in wealthy Dr. Emmett
Franklin, who takes more than a professional interest in Patsy. He invites Michael and Patsy to a
dinner that turns into a wild party. Lefty breaks in, and Patsy returns his ring. The doctor invites
father and daughter to his mountain lodge, but he leaves Michael stranded at the station. Michael
and Lefty pursue the train in an automobile. The car and train collide, and the engineer abandons
the train, leaving a part of it to run away. Lefty rescues Patsy with the aid of an airplane; the two
settle down to married life and, to Michael's pleasure, make their fortune in plumbing.
