Bette 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.
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.
The fourth screen version of Hubert Henry Davies' 1914 play Outcast, this comedy-drama stars Bette Davis as Miriam Brady, a shop girl offered 100 dollars to keep drunken socialite Geoffrey Sherwood (Ian Hunter) out of trouble. The next morning, alas, Miriam discovers that she has become Mrs. Sherwood while under the influence. The couple move to an unfashionable neighborhood where Geoffrey starts his own business, but domestic bliss is soon rudely interrupted by Valentine French (Katherine Alexander), Geoffrey's former fiancée, who wants him back. According to some reports, Genevieve Tobin, originally cast as Valentine, left THE GIRL FROM TENTH AVENUE in the last minute prior to production arguing that she was unsuited for the role.
