Playboy Charlie Hill meets beautiful Angela Bonfils, a mission house worker in the Bowery. He genuinely falls in love, so dedicated to winning over her, Charlie cleans up his act and even gets a job as a driver to impress her.
In squeaky-clean New York at the turn of the century, playboy Charlie Hill falls so much in love that he can walk on air. The object of his affections is beautiful Angela Bonfils, a mission house worker in the Bowery. He promises to reform his dissolute life, even trying to do an honest day's work.Written by

(around 65 mins) When Angela covers a tambourine with a cloth and props it up on a chair, the cloth slips off the tambourine. But when it cuts immediately to a long-shot the cloth is back in place on the tambourine. See more »
Since when didn't Kelly want to make EASTER PARADE?
Although I have no quarrel with Joseph's mostly astute comments about THE BELLE OF NEW YORK, I must question his assertion that Gene Kelly never wanted to do EASTER PARADE and faked an injury to get out of it. Can Joseph cite a source for this assertion? There are many sources that cite Kelly's injury as a real one. (As a contract player, how could he have faked it, anyway?) The only controversy at the time was that Kelly told MGM he'd hurt his foot during rehearsals, when in reality he'd broken it at his home playing one of his fiercely competitive games of football. Judy Garland -- Irving Berlin -- Arthur Freed producing -- why wouldn't Kelly have wanted to get in on such a project? It had "hit" written all over it, and of course that's exactly what it turned out to be when it was finally released with Astaire in Kelly's role.
