The Poor Boy, The Rich Boy, and the Girl Who Wanted Everything
Helen Mack put her name on virtually every form of show business entertainment in America from the beginning of motion pictures through the Golden Age of television. While she was a child in a school for performers in New York City, she appeared in several very early silent movies produced in New York, before motion picture production moved to Hollywood.
She appeared on Broadway, even writing and producing her own Broadway show later in life. After a motion picture career that spanned more than two decades, she moved back to New York to produce and direct some of the most popular network radio shows during the Golden Age of radio.
In 1956, as the Golden Age of television was beginning, she became the Vice President of the NBC television network. By 1970 she had slowed down a bit, content with writing stories for television and Broadway.
In this adventure she is a young lady living on 11th Avenue at 39th Street in Manhattan, where poor people struggle every day for their existence. Her boyfriend is a poor orphan boy who was taken in by a widow lady in the same poor neighborhood. When Mary meets a wealthy man from upper Manhattan, she decides that the poor life is not for her, so she walks away from her love for her boyfriend, played by Lew Ayres, and moves uptown with a wealthy nightclub owner, to fulfill her love for furs, jewelry, and champagne. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
