Movie Info

When starry-eyed sisters, Ruth (Rosalind Russell) and Eileen Sherwood (Janet Blair), make the leap from rural Idaho to downtown New York City, they believe they are going to make their fortunes. However, upon arriving, they find the Big Apple a little less glamorous than had they expected. After moving into a trashy basement apartment in Greenwich Village, the sisters eventually make the acquaintance of hotshot magazine editor Robert Baker (Brian Aherne), who vows to help them both succeed.

    Very delightful movie. The high jinks of the girls in New York is tremendously funny and the surprise cameo is great.

    Roz makes this rollicking good fun. Cute situations and good supporting performances add to the overall quality of this. Make sure you see this and not the very average musical remake from the 50's.

    A classis film starring Rosalind Russell. The film centers are on two sisters from Ohio moving to NYC in 1942. One sister named Eileen the beauty is an aspiring actress and the other Ruth a writer both find a place and have many crazy adventures....check this out!
