Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Finnegan's Ball was typical of the low-comedy ethnic shenanigans common to films of the 1920s. The warm relationship between the Finnegan family and the Flannigan clan gets warmer when Patrick Flannigan (Mack Swain) becomes Danny Finnegan's (Charles P. McHugh) boss. Things get ice cold, however, when Finnegan inherits a fortune and begins high-hatting his former employer. All is forgiven when the legacy turns out to be a phony. A subplot concerns the rocky romance between Molly Finnegan (Blanche Mehaffey) and Pat Flannigan Jr. (Cullen Landis). Finnegan's Ball was based on a play by George H. Emerick.
