Synopsis

The story is set in New York in the 1890s. A bawdy singer, Lady Lou (West), works in the Bowery barroom saloon of her boss and benefactor, Gus Jordan (Beery), who has given her many diamonds. But Lou is a lady with more men friends than anyone might imagine. New York, New York and NYC redirect here. ... The 1890s were sometimes referred to as the Mauve Decade, because William Henry Perkins aniline dye allowed the widespread use of that colour in fashion, and also as the Gay Nineties, under the then-current usage of the word gay which referred simply to merriment and frivolity, with no... For other uses, see Singer (disambiguation). ... The Bowery is a very well-known street in Manhattan that more or less marks the boundary between Chinatown and Little Italy on one side and the Lower East Side on the other — running from Chatham Square in the south to Astor Place in the north. ...


What she does not know is that Gus traffics in prostitution and runs a counterfeiting ring to help finance her expensive diamonds. He also sends young women to San Francisco to be pickpockets. Gus works with two other crooked entertainer-assistants, Russian Rita (Rafaela Ottiano) and Rita's lover, the suave Serge Stanieff (Gilbert Roland).

A city mission (a thinly disguised Salvation Army) is located next door to the bar. Its young director, Captain Cummings (Cary Grant), is in reality an undercover Federal agent working to infiltrate and expose the illegal activities in the bar. Gus suspects nothing; he only worries that Cummings will reform his bar and scare away the customers. Shield of The Salvation Army The Salvation Army is a non-military evangelical Christian organisation. ... This article is about the British actor. ...

Lou's former boyfriend, Chick Clark (Owen Moore), is a vicious criminal who was convicted of robbery and sent to prison for trying to steal diamonds for her. In his absence, she becomes attracted to the handsome young psalm-singing reformer. Owen Moore (December 12, 1886 - June 9, 1939) was born in Fordstown Crossroads, County Meath, Ireland. ...


When she goes to the prison to visit Chick, all the inmates know her as she walks down the cellblock. Chick becomes angry and threatens to kill her if she double-crosses or two-times him before he gets out.


Gus gives counterfeit money to Rita and Serge to spend. Chick escapes, and police search for him in the bar. He comes into Lou's room and threatens to strangle her. She tells him she will go with him when she finishes her next number.


Rita starts a fight with Lou, who accidentally stabs her. She has her bodyguard dispose of Rita's body. After she sings "Frankie and Johnny," gunfire draws a police raid. Cummings shows his badge and reveals himself as "The Hawk", a well-known Federal agent, as he arrests Gus and Serge. Chick threatens Lou with a gun, but is also apprehended.

Cummings then takes Lou away to jail in an open horse-drawn carriage instead of the paddywagon.

"Where'd you get that . . . dark and handsome?" Lou asks.


"You bad girl," he scolds.


"You'll find out," she coos.
