Movie Info

Despite its hard-line title, Girl from Tenth Avenue is a lightheaded--er, lighthearted--Cinderella story. Bette Davis plays a girl of the tenements who makes the chance acquaintance of playboy Ian Hunter. To get even with his fickle fiancee (Katherine Alexander), Hunter marries Davis, whom he doesn't even know. The situation is of course "quite impossible" to Hunter's snooty friends and relations, but true-blue Davis turns out to have more character and intestinal fortitude than the whole filthy-rich bunch of 'em. She gets Hunter to stop drinking and to assume some responsibility over his life, thus winning out over his bitchy ex-fiancee. Based on a play by Hubert Henry Davies, Girl From Tenth Avenue is totally reliant upon the dynamic Bette Davis for its success.

Audience Reviews for The Girl from 10th Avenue


Bette Davis finds herself married to a wealthy socialite after an evening of intoxication. Minor but rather good drama, well acted, good supporting cast, especially Alison Skipworth. Short and very fast paced. Nothing great, but Bette Davis' early movies have a certain fascination about them. Directed by Alfred E. Green.
