In this social comedy, an aging Manhattan tycoon tires of feeling neglected by his family (who forgot about his birthday) and decides to take drastic steps to rectify the situation. The fun begins when he meets an impoverished young woman in Central Park and decides to take her out on the town. With her consent, he then brings her home and, to upset his family, tries to make it look as if she were his gold-digging mistress.

All Critics (2)

A listless class war comedy set during the waning days of the Depression.

Fifth Avenue Girl has Ginger Rogers in it, and Walter Connolly, so it's worth seeing.

Audience Reviews for Fifth Avenue Girl

Sure Rogers isn't the best of expressive and enchanting leading ladies to ever grace the Hollywood fathom,nevertheless her pussycat claws made me bow to her boyish fancies.La Cava must have enjoyed whipping the "white collars" of that period although he certainly couldn't go farther than the usual innuendos,as was used by studio directors.... Fuck it,the guy knew how to tastefully cheer us all!
