Movie Info

An aging New York City fruit seller named Apple Annie (May Robson) attempts to maintain an outrageous charade. Long separated from her daughter, Louise (Jean Parker), who has been raised in a Spanish convent, Annie has hidden her modest position in life by claiming in her letters to be an aristocrat. When Louise finally comes to visit, Annie enlists the help of local gangster Dave the Dude (Warren William) to pose as a Manhattan socialite, leading to antics aplenty.

Audience Reviews for Lady for a Day

  • Nov 15, 2013
    A cute little pick me up for those suffering through the Depression, Lady for a Day is harmless Capra is not memorable Capra. Feel goodiness without too much depth.

    Damon Runyon's short story was the perfect vehicle for Frank Capra's intended assault on the Oscars of 1933, only Oscar didn't bite. No matter, the popular street personalities he created live on for us, thanks to Capra's affection for tough characters with soft hearts, his approximation of the American zeitgeist (which may or may not be true ... but we sure wished that it was). Special mention must be given to Ned Sparks who steals every scene he's in.

    A very beautiful movie about a mother and daughter and love and family. Predictable, but sweet.
