A Parisian sewer worker (James Stewart), cynical about his prospects and about the world, is entreated to offer an abandoned prostitute (Simone Simon) the shelter of his dingy seventh-floor garret. The new housemates soon find their life-hardened exteriors being chipped away by the possibility of genuine romance. Second filming of the Austin Strong play co-stars Jean Hersholt, Gale Sondergaard, Gregory Ratoff, J. Edward Bromberg. 102 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
