Girl in Room 20 (1946)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Spencer Williams' directed this drama with an all black cast. A country girl (Geraldine Brock) moves to the big city with dreams of becoming a famous singer. Once in the big city she's befriended by a cab driver (Williams) but also runs in with the wrong crowd who hope to take advantage of her. Despite the extremely low budget, director Williams is able to tell a pretty good story, although it's over the top happy ending comes off very forced. Williams gives the best performance in the film but Brock does a fine job as well and her singing is quite nice.
