Quotes

Lawrence 'Larry' Baldwin: We all have our dreams. Some of us are fortunate enough to have those dreams realized. This building imbedded in rock, but built upon an ideal, reminds us that man never builds alone. There's always a woman besides him. And to this woman whose sound advice and deep understanding is responsible for what little success I may have achieved. And who is really responsible for the fulfillment of my dream: this building. To that woman, I humbly offer my heartfelt thanks.

A Forgotten But Still Great Kay Francis Film!
28 September 2016 | by JLRMovieReviewsSee all my reviews

In "Street of Women," the love of women inspires men to build. These skyscrapers are testaments or monuments to womankind, so says Roland Young to friend and fashion designer Kay Francis. He keep proposing to her, but she keeps declining. Instead, she finds love in married man Alan Dinehart, but when he presses his wife for a divorce, she won't agree to it. By the way, Kay's brother and Alan's daughter, played by Gloria Stuart, are in love and plan to marry, but the usual complications set in. This is a very enjoyable little film, which is grand in production value and storytelling. Kay has never looked better and/or that much in real love! She has good scenes with actor Alan Dinehart that resonate with the viewer; these are real people we care about. But who will make the sacrifice for others' happiness? Who will live happily ever after? Roland Young, known for his "Topper" movies, is the man to solve the problems, as he seems to be the one with his head on his shoulders. "Street of Women" is a unknown entry in the career of Kay Francis that deserves to be shown on TCM more often.
