The "Abie's Irish Rose" formula was given yet another airing in MGM's Frisco Sally Levy. Sally O'Neil plays Colleen Lapidowitz, the daughter of Jewish father Isaac (Tenen Holtz) and Irish mother Bridget (Kate Price). When Colleen falls in love with Irish cop Patrick Sweeney (Charles Delaney), it comes as a relief to her parents, who've spent most of the picture trying to discourage Colleen's interest in oily lounge lizard Stuart Gold (Roy D'Arcy). This is the sort of picture in which everyone's problems are solved by the heroine's strawberry shortcake. Mickey Daniels, late of the Our Gang comedies, is often erroneously identified as the young actor playing Colleen's brother (it's really a juvenile performer named Turner Savage).
