Paradise Alley is the ironic nickname for a rundown tenement district in the Lower East Side. Despite their shabby surroundings, everyone in Paradise Alley is blissfully happy, thanks to the goodwill spread by heroine Barbara Bedford, the "sunshine" of the title. When banker Gayne Whitman proposes to tear down the Alley to erect a factory, Bedford tries to prevent this tragedy. Despite the interference of villainous Nigel Barrie, the heroine succeeds with the help of clean-limbed hero Kenneth McDonald. Jewish comedian Max Davidson provides his usual ethnic buffoonery as a soft-hearted merchant.
