Boston Blackie Silent Movies
Boston Blackie takes revenge on a judge who refused to arrange a pardon for a dying friend.
Studio: Universal Pictures
RATING: * * *
Thomas Carrigan as Boston Blackie
Based on the Short Story: "The Daughter of Crooked Alley" by Jack Boyle
Boston Blackie is not a completely reformed crook who tries to hide his criminal tendencies and
devotes his life to righting wrongs. In this case, Blackie wants to wreak vengeance upon the
cruel and merciless Judge Milner who was partially responsible for the death of a kindly old
convict by refusing to arrange a pardon for the man. To expedite this, Blackie hires Norine,
the dying man's daughter, to help "get" the judge through his son Rudy Milnar. Blackie takes the
judge's son, Rudy, under his wing and attempts to steer the lad into a criminal career. Blackie
is reformed by sweet Norine, daughter of the deceased convict. A romance between the two prevents
the plan from succeeding.
