Bette Davis Double Feature
Fog Over Frisco and The Girl from 10th Ave

Fog Over Frisco: Arlene Bradford (Bette Davis) is a spoiled, bored, wealthy socialite who finances her extravagant lifestyle by exploiting her fiancé Spencer Carlton’s (Lyle Talbot) access to her stepfather’s brokerage firm and using her connection to steal security bonds for crime boss Jake Bello (Irving Pichel).

The Girl from 10th Avenue: Geoffrey Sherwood, rejected by Valentine French in favor of wealthier suitor John Marland, watches her wedding from outside the church. Inebriated, he becomes increasingly louder, drawing the attention of two policemen as well as Miriam Brady, a shopgirl on her lunch hour, who takes Geoff to a cafe to spare him from arrest. There they encounter Hugh Brown and Tony Hewlitt, two of his society friends, who offer Miriam $100 to keep an eye on Geoffrey and make sure he stays out of trouble.
