The Prince of Avenue A is a 1920 American drama film directed by John Ford. The film is considered to be lost.
As described in a film magazine, Barry O'Connor (Corbett), son of Patrick O'Connor (Cummings), plumber and political power, is called to the residence of William Tompkins (Vroom), Tammany man, whom he is to "put over" in the coming election. Here Barry meets Mary Tompkins (Warren), and mutual admiration results in an invitation to a social affair at the Tompkins home. At the affair Barry's crude ways bring forth criticism and he leaves, offended. His father threatens to withdraw his support of the candidate but later changes his mind. The rupture is later healed when Mary and her father attend a ward ball and Mary leads the grand march with Barry. This begins the romance that culminates in the marriage of Barry and Mary.
