Lady For A Day on TCM
Early tomorrow morning TCM is running Lady For A Day, The 1933 one. There's another one from the 50's (I think) with Bette Davis that I don't really care for. For my money this is the one. Set your DVR's it's on 7:30 am EST and 4:30 PST.
It's about a penniless drunk women, Apple Annie, who sells apples every day to a gangster, who thinks they're lucky. Apple Annie finds out that her daughter, who she sent to Europe for school as a child(I have no idea how she swings that on apple money), is coming home with a fiance. Apple Annie has pretended to her daughter that she is rich and her health is what has kept her from visiting. So the gangster comes to her aid and it's all very sweet. Just watch it.
