The Young Stork Club Babe and the Old Wealthy Man

On lower Abbey Street in Dublin, Ireland, a trio of Irish philanthropists led by Lady Gregory founded a theatre. The Amharclann na Mainistreach, or the Abbey Theatre, opened 27 December 1904. In addition to highbrow plays, the theatre also featured romantic comedy plays. One of the most popular comic character actors was a young man named William Joseph Shields, who had a civil service day-job.

As motion pictures began to be made he got small parts in three British silent movies, and in 1936 he went to Hollywood to see if he could find success there. Changing his stage name to Barry Fitzgerald, he would perform in one of his best remembered movies, “Bringing up Baby” in 1938.

In 1944 he got the rare honor of being nominated for two Academy Awards, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, for the same movie, “Going My Way.” He won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, and the next year Academy Award rules were changed so that no one could ever again be nominated for more than one category in the same movie.

In this romantic comedy he is an elderly millionaire who is saved from drowning by a beautiful young girl working as a hat-check girl at the famous Stork Club in New York City. He is so grateful that he plans to secretly endow the young girl with part of his fortune. Unfortunately, when her boyfriend returns from the war and discovers her friendship with an old man, many comic misunderstandings will follow. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
