Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Blind Alleys is basic comic material paced like a melodrama by Paramount's workhorse director Frank Tuttle. Thomas Meighan stars as a Merchant Marine captain who returns to New York with his new South American bride Gretta Nissen (a Swede playing a South American-well, it was a silent film). No sooner do they hit dry land than Meighan and his missus are separated during a traffic accident. Meighan spends the rest of the picture combing Manhattan in search of his wife, taking time out for a near-dalliance with Evelyn Brent. Blind Alleys was based on a play by Owen Davis Sr.
