After bringing down yet another German aviator and escaping uninjured from a burning plane, Haggerty ( Milton Sills ) and his buddy, machinist Klaxon ( Arthur Stone ), head for Paris without leave of absence. In escaping from M. P.'s, Haggerty takes refuge in a room occupied by Germaine ( Molly O'Day ). From her protection springs a love affair, and Haggerty decides to reform, returning to Major Cotton ( Mitchell Lewis ) with this resolution. He is unprepared, however, to be awarded a medal for distinguished service. The major, when introduced to Germaine at the officers' ball, recognizes her as Go-Go, a notorious cabaret dancer, and tries to inform Haggerty of her identity. Haggerty knocks him down, and they are both arrested. At the trial, the major tells his story and Germaine confesses. After the Armistice, it develops that Go-Go is actually Germaine's sister, and that Germaine was trying to protect her. The lovers are reunited.
This 1927 silent comedy/drama was based from the short story "Belated Evidence" by Eliot White Springs, produced by First National Pictures, starring Milton Sills and Molly O'Day. The survival status of Hard-Boiled Haggerty is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
