Peacock Alley is a 1921 American silent drama film starring Monte Blue and Mae Murray. The film was directed by Murray's husband at the time, Robert Z. Leonard. An incomplete print survives at the Library of Congress.
Elmer Harmon (Monte Blue) travels from the United States to Paris on business, meets Cleo of Paris (Mae Murray), and marries her. On their return to the United States, Elmer's friends do not approve of Cleo, and therefore the couple moves to the city. Eventually, Elmer comes to believe that Cleo is having an affair, but the film concludes with the revelation that she was just getting financial help from an old friend.
The film was one of Murray's most successful films, and one of the biggest hits of 1921. The film was so successful was it was the only silent film of Murray's that she remade as a "talkie" under the same title, though major changes were made to the plot.
