The Girl from Chicago is a lost[1] 1927 silent film criminal romance drama directed by Ray Enright and starring Myrna Loy and Conrad Nagel. It was produced and distributed by the Warner Bros. The film later had a Vitaphone soundtrack of sound effects and music added.[2]

The film is one of the earliest starring roles for Loy who at this time, 1927, didn't usually star but was a supporting player. Warners took a chance casting her in a principal part.[3]


Southern girl Mary Carlton finds out that her brother, Bob Carlton, is going to the electric chair for a crime he says he didn't commit. In order to get her brother exonerated, Mary travels to New York and pretends to be a Chicago gun moll. She wins the love of two gangsters, Handsome Joe and Big Steve Drummond. Joe, it turns out, isn't a gangster at all, but an undercover detective. He attempts to help Mary prove her brother's innocence, and the two of them are caught in a fierce gun battle between the crooks and the cops. They make it through alive (although Drummond gets his due), and Bob is released at the last minute.
