The Girl From Woolworth's was an appropriate title for this bargain-counter musical. Alice White stars as Pat King, a salesgirl in Woolworth's musical department. Naturally, Pat's job requires that she sing for her supper, as good an excuse as any for several otherwise superfluous musical numbers. With the help of Broadway entrepreneur Lawrence Mayfield (Wheeler Oakman), our heroine achieves success as a musical-comedy star. But in the end, she gives it all up for the love of down-to-earth Bill Harrigan (Charles Delaney). Reviewers singled out supporting player Rita Flynn as the film's best actress; Flynn is best known today for her uncredited appearance as James Cagney's sister-in-law in Public Enemy (1931).
