Chicago is a 1927 American comedy-drama silent film produced by Cecil B. DeMille and directed by Frank Urson.


The plot of the film is drawn from the 1926 play Chicago by Maurine Dallas Watkins which was in turn based on the true story of Beulah Annan, fictionalized as Roxie Hart (Phyllis Haver), and her spectacular murder of her boyfriend.
