Storyline

Singer Denny Martin's marriage to telephone operator Mary Wilson has been postponed several times already and is delayed once again when he changes jobs from singing telegrams to being a singing cab driver. His friend Cyrus Barrett Jr. is the scion of an autocratic millionaire father who is determined to wrest custody of his grandson from his alcoholic son and wife Mona. After Cyrus goes into rehab to dry out on Denny's advice, Barrett Sr. legally moves against his daughter-in-law and tries to have her arrested on kidnapping charges. A desperate Mona leaves Denny in charge of her infant son until she can locate the younger Barrett, but this presents new complications for Denny and his Russisn roommate Nicky as fiancée Mary becomes suspicious that Denny may be seeing another woman.

Quotes

Denny Martin: Say, Mr. Bennett, could I speak to you for a minute? Now you can stop me if you've heard this.
Cyrus Barrett Jr.: [Happily anticipating] Oh, you've got a new story?
Denny Martin: No. Oh, no. It's an old story, and you've probably heard it before... but here's how it goes... most scientists agree that one of the few things that can't be preserved in alcohol is a happy home.

Bing Crosby, a baby, and a game cast provide ample charms in East Side of Heaven
14 February 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is one of two films Bing Crosby-a Paramount contract player-made on loan to Universal. In this one, he's originally a telegram singer before getting fired and becoming a crooning taxi driver. He's engaged to Joan Blondell and has Mischa Auer for a roommate. Oh, and there's a baby involved. I'll stop there and just say that the songs sung by Bing are entertaining especially one number taking place in a café where both the female cooks and some waitresses join in. There's plenty of funny lines and mannerisms especially from Auer. And this baby, whose name is Sandy, is sure cute! Really, this was a breezy 90 minutes that didn't test my patience. So on that note, East Side of Heaven is worth a look.
