A decent, everyday person facing economic hard times gives the idle rich their comeuppance: it’s a storyline staple of Depression-era comedy romances, one that served William Powell in My Man Godfrey, Ginger Rogers in 5th Ave. Girl and, moving 5 blocks west, Bette Davis in The Girl from 10th Avenue. Davis plays working girl Miriam Brady, who rescues heartbroken attorney and society man Geoffrey Sherwood (Ian Hunter) from his public bout of blues in a bottle, marries him and then tries to keep him when Geoffrey’s former flame resurfaces. Among the highlights: an ex-Floradora girl (Alison Skipworth) enlightening Miriam in the smart set’s dos, don’ts and don’t-you-dares.
