All theaters are listed by the name in use when their last theatrical production took place. The Actors' Equity agreement is the largest defining moment in the classification of Broadway theaters. It granted smaller theaters in New York the ability to hire union members to perform, as long as they were paid a "token salary", alongside non-union members in their houses.
This new union contract laid out a legal division between Broadway and the newly defined Off-Broadway theaters. Actors' Equity, the union for performers and actors, founded only a few years earlier inused this month-long strike to cement acting as a "fully legitimate professional trade",  where the performers produced labor for a now-official industry, Broadway theatre. Before the advent of the musical there were multiple theaters in New York that claimed the moniker of "Broadway", including an theater named the Broadway Theatre.

Adults and teens both will love this story. Teens can recognize the turmoil of being a teen, and adults can recall that turmoil without being embarrassed by the characters. That is a difficult balance to strike. Author Anna Adams deserves praise for this beautiful, touching tale. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. I can't not say that i really enjoyed this reading ths book. Because I very much did. The beginning was good and everything I mean geez choosing over Matt and Thomas Bradfield, it's not exactly hard.
The Girl From New York City - The Exception (2) - The Girl From New York City (Vinyl) book went on a bit too much for my taste, but I wish the author scratched out those aawkward moments between Matt and Maude. The author should definitely get a proper editor. I noticed loads of grammar mistakes. The cheesyiness of this story is, well, rather annoying.
But it can be ignored if you try hard enough. But to be honest, I do love a cheesy book or film now and then. They are all different and have so much personality.
This one thing the author really did well. Just read this and make yourself belive it's a happy ending. Please, I suffered so you didn't have too. For more info on this, check out my other reviews on the other books in the series which I will put up soon it'll be set out like this. Read this one forst though. I would reccommend for girls, just because I think they would enjoy the content more. But still boys, you can read this too! Report abuse. One person found this helpful.
I started reading this a while back, and was immediately hooked. The idea of a French girl making a break to Paris, and then further to New York to pursue her dreams for her big break? A great story could derive from that. After reading the entire thing, I can understand the reasons for the author's writing style and the way she went about telling the story, but from the point where the book started to discuss Matt and Maude's exploration of New York, it became way too predictable.
And I mean, I pretty much guessed the story from there till the end. And then came the issue of her mysterious parents, and just It was all too obvious what was going to happen at the end. I enjoyed the French girl at the start who struggled with her English and was naive to the American world around her, but it quickly turned into an unnecessary love story which was given away from the start.
I also felt that the writer told the story too much, instead of showing readers what was happening, probably because I'm older than the target audience. Personally for me, the book was way too predictable, and it just got to the point where I skipped page upon page because it was way too cringe-worthy, but if you're in the demographic for this story, then you'll probably find it a durable read.
I accually couldn't put this book down because it was so good. I ended up reading it at night and sneaking it outside. This book is a must buy. There is no bad things in it and it is a very touching book. A storyline to keep the reader wondering what happens next to these lovely characters. French village life, going on to Paris and then New York New York!!!!.
Family life at it's sharpest and teenagers with all their highs and lows. Real music in all it's beauty described thoroughly. A truly enjoyable book to suit readers of all ages. More items to explore.
Believe in Me Believe in Love Book 1. Amy Sparling. Save Mermaid Kingdom! The Tail of the Mermaids Book 2. Celesta Thiessen. Bryan R. Girl from Missouri starts out with the girls getting on a train, with Eadie making a promise to herself to earn money while looking for a millionaire husband, staying whole-some in the process.
Paige, another rich, uppercrust who comes to her rescue when trouble comes looking for Eadie. At one point, Paige declares "You oughta scratch me off your list - I'm not a ladies man" I wonder what that line would have been just a couple years earlier before the Hayes code came rolling into town. What was he really saying? Looks like she was only in showbiz from -with "Munchkin" in Wizard of Oz being the last part she played. Fun, cleancut romp as the girls chase men around the country.
Look for Nat Pendleton as the lifeguard, who was an Olympic Wrestler silver medal winner turned film star he was in many of the Dr. Kildares, and would appear in four of Harlow's films. Mistaken identity, plot twists, a young Franchot Tone, love stories, even Jean Harlow in a bathing suit in "Palm Beach", although the outdoor scenes of downtown appear to be a backdrop.
Jean Harlow is "The Girl from Missouri" in this film that ran afoul of the production code and had to be cleaned up. Gone is the tough, sexy gal who's been around the block too many times to count. Now she's cheap-looking but wants the ring on her finger before anything else. Jean Harlow is Eadie, and she's a delight in this film, which also stars Franchot Tone as the object of her affections, Lionel Barrymore as his father, and Patsy Kelly as her good friend.
Eadie sets her sights on an old man, Cousins Lewis Stone at a party he throws; he's broke and has just asked T. Paige Barrymore for a loan. He doesn't get it. Eadie enters, and Cousins gives her his ruby cuff links, which she won't take because they're not engaged.
Cousins, knowing he's about to blow his brains out, agrees to marry her, so she takes the cuff links. Before she knows it, he's dead, and she's slipped the cuff links to Paige so she won't be accused of stealing them.
Eadie then sets her sights on Paige and follows him to Palm Beach, where she meets a young man Franchot Tone who turns out to be T. Paige Jr. She's wildly attracted to him, but he's a playboy. Will he fall for her? Can it work? Good movie. Tone is smooth and elegant. I've never cared for Patsy Kelly; she always seems to be shouting, and she's very stagy. Barrymore is good The Girl From New York City - The Exception (2) - The Girl From New York City (Vinyl) always.
So the pure Jean, still with the platinum blonde hair, makes her debut in this film governed by the Hays Code. A shame her career wasn't longer. She had a wonderful screen presence. When Harlow is in a scene, it is hers. She plays Eadie, a small town girl headed to the big city with her best friend Kitty Patsy Kelly.
She becomes a chorus girl with the intention of landing a man On one hand it seems she will do anything to get what she wants; on the other hand she doesn't want to stray far from her values. Thinking she has landed the wealthy T. Paige Lionel Barrymorewho really doesn't want to take her seriously. Franchot Tone is the one smitten by the blonde bombshell. Daddy Paige will do what he can to discourage his son from stooping down for the love of a flashy chorus girl.
Fast moving comedy and yes, Miss Harlow really can be funny almost effortlessly. And no doubt she looks good coming as she does going. Harlow is determined to find a rich husband; Patsy is just as interested in meeting doormen and lifeguards.
Lionel Barrymore is excellent as T. Paige, a millionaire who has worked his way up from nothing himself and sees Harlow as a "platinum chiseler" after his son; Franchot Tone is also good as Tom Paige, the son of that wealth whose eager pursuit of Harlow inspires her distrust and his father's dismay. Will he propose to her? Will she accept him? Will Lionel accept her as a daughter-in-law? Patsy Kelly plays it mostly straight as Harlow's friend and companion, and gives a solid performance.
Lewis Stone has one poignant scene early on as a ruined businessman. The funniest scene belongs to Nat Pendleton as a beefy lifeguard who, when called, pops up from behind a boat on the sand. Overall, though, it's Jean Harlow's show all the way—and she is charming, strong yet vulnerable, ultimately as tough and clever as Barrymore's political schemer and a match for Tone and his charming grin. No classic, but good fun. MartinHafer 16 April During the early s, pretty much anything went when it came to films--nudity, cursing, adultery and graphic violence.
However, these sort of films did not set well with many Americans or special interest groups, such as the Catholic Legion of Decency and attendance began to drop--leading the leaders of the various studios to scramble to bring back viewers. Ultimately, this led to the creation of the new Productiton Code of Gone were all the excesses of the past years and in its place was a very sanitized world--where husbands and wives didn't even sleep in the same bed!
This was a problem for some actresses. Now, with the Code, plots were drastically changed and some of these actresses faded after all, who today remembers Ann Harding?
Even this image caused problems with the censors and a Harlow film was usually given extra scrutiny by the board because of her reputation in films. Because of this background, making "The The Girl From New York City - The Exception (2) - The Girl From New York City (Vinyl) From Missouri" was tough and it required many rewrites and cuts.
And, as a result, it resulted in a very strange sort of morality. In this film, Harlow looks and sometimes acts cheap--but she ain't. Down deep she has VERY strong morals. She will NOT sleep with a man before marriage BUT in a nod to the old Harlow, she still insists that she must marry a rich man--love him or not!
So, she's a gold-digger with a heart of gold! As a result of these changes, the films were still fun--but if you thought about the plots, they really made no sense at all. It does have some lovely supporting actors--in particular Lionel Barrymore and Patsy Kelly. And, the film is quite fun from start to finish. By the way, I mentioned Kelly in this film because I usually hated her films. However, here she was less brash and loud--and was a positive element in the movie.
Here, she really proves she could act and behaves like a hilarious man-crazy dame but without all the yelling. In reality she was apparently a lesbian and I assume The Girl From New York City - The Exception (2) - The Girl From New York City (Vinyl) due to the rigidity of the new Code the studio deliberately gave the normally sexually ambiguous Kelly a VERY heterosexual role--as it was VERY atypical of her earlier roles.
So, thanks to the Code, some folks went even deeper into the closet--as gay characters were pretty common up until No matter how you slice it, she comes up Lorelei Lee. The names may be different, but Jean Harlow and Patsy Kelly are identical to the blonde and brunette heroines of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes".
Instead of heading out to sea from the Big Apple, they pack their bags and head out of the mid-west hoping to take Manhattan and its millionaires by storm. Who better to play Anita Loos's lovable gold-digger than Jean Harlow? Unlike Marilyn Monroe's movie version of Lorelei, Harlow is closer to the stage incarnation of that character, here a tough girl who doesn't want to end up like her tired but still fairly young mother.
She has morals, but like Lorelei believes it is better to fall in love with a rich man rather than a poor one, and ultimately gets more than her original intentions. The mannish Patsy Kelly is so delightfully funny as well as touching as Lorelei's pal, who like "Gentlemen Prefer Blonde's" Dorothy Jane Russell on screen isn't necessarily looking for gold, just love, sweet love. She flirts with every handsome blue collar worker she lays her eyes on, but is at Harlow's beck and call as every best pal should be, even if it interferes with her carnal activities.
Her best line of wanting to be a nice home girl just like Mae West is a gem. Made just on the cusp of the unfortunate Hays code, there's still plenty of innuendo concerning sex, prostitution, infidelity and cocaine to go around.
The basic story concerns Harlow's involvement in the missing cufflinks of the suicidal Lewis Stone and the scandal that breaks after she sets her eye on the wealthy Lionel Barrymore and later his son Franchot Tone whom she initially believes to be poor. Not as blatant as previous Harlow outings particularly her gold-digging "Red Headed Woman"it is still plenty juicy. Because the Hays Code was implemented during the production of this film, it has a bit of a contradictory plot - Harlow wants to have fun but she also insists that she has the highest morals.
She sets her eyes on the rich elder host of a party, Cousins Lewis Stone and he agrees to marry her. However, unbeknownst to Eadie, he has just been turned down for a large loan and will imminently kill himself. She then turns her attentions to TR Paige Lionel Barrymorea banking magnate, who isn't interested in her and can see through her games. His son TR Paige Jr. Franchot Toneis besotted with her and his dad thinks that if he gets burned by the money-grubber, he might learn something.
Eadie shows herself to have a heart of gold and so the film doesn't turn out as the banking magnate might have foreseen it. Some great acting by Tone and Harlow steals every scene she is in. Barrymore is fantastic and effortless in his role. Kelly is very good as Eadie's frisky friend. An enjoyable way to spend 75 minutes. In this film, Jean Harlow comes from a low class childhood, when the death of her father led her mother to remarry and, under the stepfather's influence, her mother becomes a "hostess" and Jean is encouraged in entertain as well.
But, when she has enough, Jean sneaks off to meet the world head on and tries to find herself love and a soft place to fall. By means of a job and connections, she meets Lewis Stone, but he has his own problems. Then she tries to latch on to Lionel Barrymore, but there's more to him than meets the eye, as he acts kind to her, but realizes, or so he thinks, that she is only mercenary.
Enter his son Franchot Tone, as he sets his sights on Jean, but Lionel has his own agenda. Such sets up the story in this enjoyable Jean Harlow film. Her career began with characters that were purely out for money and rich men, but, with the movie studio trying to make sure their films could pass the Hays Production Code, they made her characters more with a heart of gold, instead of heartless.
This film certainly entertains and at the same time is emotionally charged, as we see Jean trying to be a good girl despite her yen for Franchot. If you've never seen Jean Harlow, this is certainly one of her best, even though it's not as well known as other films of hers.
