Overview

The fourth screen version of Hubert Henry Davies' 1914 play Outcast, this comedy-drama stars Bette Davis as Miriam Brady, a shop girl offered 100 dollars to keep drunken socialite Geoffrey Sherwood (Ian Hunter) out of trouble. The next morning, alas, Miriam discovers that she has become Mrs. Sherwood while under the influence. The couple move to an unfashionable neighborhood where Geoffrey starts his own business, but domestic bliss is soon rudely interrupted by Valentine French (Katherine Alexander), Geoffrey's former fiancée, who wants him back. According to some reports, Genevieve Tobin, originally cast as Valentine, left The Girl From Tenth Avenue in the last minute prior to production arguing that she was unsuited for the role.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Good acting by the principals saves this otherwise uninspired marital comedy-drama from the doldrums. Taking a leaf from Joan Crawford, Bette Davis is surprisingly believable as the upwardly mobile tenement girl and Ian Hunter is equally fine as the jilted society scion. Katherine Alexander could play calculating bitches better than almost anyone and Alison Skipworth is capital as Bette's neighbor, a former Floradora girl now down on her luck. Only Colin Clive, as Alexander's stiff husband, is wasted in what essentially is a stock role.
