Radio Stars on Parade / The Mayor of 44th StreetMusical
Box Office: $0.0M
No good deed goes unpunished - at least temporarily - in The Mayor of 44th Street. Future U.S. Senator George Murphy plays Joe Jonathan, a nice-guy Broadway agent who attempts to help a paroled racketeer and a kid involved in a street gang, only to see that duo try to take control of his operations. Anne Shirley and Richard Barthelmess, in his final film, costar, and the music includes the silken sounds of bandleader Freddy Martin. Don't touch that dial: An entertainment romp is yours in Radio Stars on Parade. Comedy duo Wally Brown and Alan Carney, often likened to Abbott and Costello, play jobless comedians who land an unexpected appearance on the wacky Truth or Consequences radio show, become Hollywood talent agents targeted by a vindictive mobster and end up fleeing for their lives - a pursuit that ends on the on-air set of Dick Tracy. Frances Langford, a radio star and popular performer on Bob Hope's USO tours, costars.
