Boston Blackie has had many faces over the years, brought to life by more than a dozen different leading men.  But his steadfast wife Mary has had a number of different incarnations as well.  This week, we’re spotlighting Alice Brady, who starred in the in 1923 feature film Missing Millions (a production which is actually more Mary’s story than Blackie’s).  Based on Jack Boyle’s Red Book Magazine tales “A Problem in Grand Larceny” and “An Answer in Grand Larceny,” the film casts Miss Brady opposite David Powell as Boston Blackie.  Alice Brady trade ad 1922
