Description by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment:
Set in the colorful Prohibition era, this "genuinely captivating" (Los Angeles Times) musical stars Alice Faye as a rising Ziegfeld star who is faithful to her crooked scheming husband (Tyrone Power) even after his showdown with the law. Co-star Al Jolson performs many of his legendary songs.
Behind the Scenes "Rose of Washington Square" is one of Alice Faye's most popular screen roles and marks her final teaming with Tyrone Power. The film also features some of her most memorable songs, including "My Man."
Tyrone Power stars as confidence man and gambler Bart Clinton in this rags to riches melodrama set against the backdrop of the Great White Way. Ted Cotter falls for Rose when the two are just starting out in the world of vaudeville. Upon becoming a star, Ted helps the young woman make her name on Broadway. Instead of marrying Ted, however, Rose falls in love, and weds, the good-for-nothing Bart Clinton. Even when Bart skips bail, Rose continues to pine for her husband -- completely ignoring Ted's earnest affection for her. But her patience is not in vain, as Bart slowly begins to realize the error of his ways.
