Great movie
2 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this movie when I was a kid. It is considered a lost movie but I taped it of my satellite dish last summer. and I am glad I have it. Other than appearing on a satellite channel it is impossible to acquire.. Carole Landis played a great part but it is sad that she died so young. The baseball scenes are great especially when the Dodgers win the pennant. Carole Landis' reaction at this moment is so special! Lloyd Nolan who played in the movie A Tree Grows In Brooklyn with the greatest actress who ever lived Peggy Ann Garner did a great job in this movie. It Happened in Flatbush is considered a lost film but I am glad I own a copy and I am also thankful that I have the memories of this great movie!
