Shantytown (1943) APPROVED · 1h 6min · Crime, Drama, Music · 20 April 1943
Elizabeth "Liz" Gorty (Mary Lee) lives with her mother and stepfather in a ramshackle boarding house in "Shantytown" on the "wrong side of the tracks." Bill Allen (John Archer) and his wife Virginia (Marjorie Lord) rent a room from the Gorty's and "Liz", always a tomboy, resolves to become a lady like Virginia, who is expecting a baby. Bill is a fugitive from the law because he was innocently involved in a crime pulled off by the "Ace" Landers gang. Landers (Noel Madison) locates Bill and the latter is forced to drive a get-away car in a bank robbery. The gang is caught but Bill escapes. Meanwhile, Virginia is ill and is attended by kindly old "Doc" Herndon (Harry Davenport). "Liz" manages to get on an amateur-hour broadcast, sings "On The Corner of Sunshine and Main" and "It Had To Be You", accompanied by Marty Malneck (Matty Malneck) and his Orchestra , and she tosses in a plea for Bill to come home. - Written by Les Adams
