The fourth screen version of Hubert Henry Davies' 1914 play Outcast, this comedy-drama stars Bette Davis as Miriam Brady, a shop girl offered 100 dollars to keep drunken socialite Geoffrey Sherwood (Ian Hunter) out of trouble. The next morning, alas, Miriam discovers that she has become Mrs. Sherwood while under the influence. The couple move to an unfashionable neighborhood where Geoffrey starts his own business, but domestic bliss is soon rudely interrupted by Valentine French (Katherine Alexander), Geoffrey's former fiancée, who wants him back. According to some reports, Genevieve Tobin, originally cast as Valentine, left The Girl From Tenth Avenue in the last minute prior to production arguing that she was unsuited for the role.
