      Plot Summary
      New York policeman James Riley is asked to retrieve neighborhood boy
      Joe Smith (David Rollins), who skipped town after being falsely accused of theft and is now
      living a sinful life in Berlin. It isn't long before Riley himself succumbs to charms of the
      German metropolis, whereupon he magnanimously allows Joe to stay in Berlin long enough
      to win the heart of aristocratic Mary Coronelli (Nancy Drexel). Riley himself also finds
      romance, in the form of gawky German damsel Lena (Louise Fazenda). Little does he realize
      that Lena is the sister of his hated rival — police officer Hans Krausmeyer (Harry Schultz).

    • Re: John Ford- Riley the Cop (1928)

      Riley the Cop is a 1928 silent comedy film,
      with a synchronized music track.
      All evidence suggests that Riley the Cop was a delightful vehicle
      for John Ford "regular" J. Farrell McDonald.
      It would seem that the movie is presently unavailable
      but not completely lost.
