5th ave girl
- kevin sellers
With all the class warfare stuff, coming in a movie made in 1939, as America was coming OUT of a Depression, this film has the forlorn, tired feel of a party guest who's arrived just as the festivities are breaking up. Give it a C.
Ginger always delivers
I have never seen a "Ginger" film I did not enjoy and would like to see again. This is one is a prime example. Your previous reviewers have used terms like "enjoyable", "feel good movie", and Ginger always delivers" regarding this film. These are all true on all counts. 5 years is much too long before showing this little gem again. Please show this one again real soon; along with other Ginger films we have not had the privilege to enjoy on TCM, or at least, in a long time. Would you consider doing a Ginger Rogers star of the month and/or Summer Under the Stars? She could do it all: sing, dance, do comedy, and do dramatic roles with the best, as evidenced by her academy award film, "Kitty Foyle".Thank you so much for making me aware of so fine a performer/entertainer/actress.

Fifth Avenue Girl (1939)
- Mr. Blandings
Decent story idea comes across as a bit tedious and overly long. Ginger Rogers' character starts out promising but ends up undeveloped and impossible to read. So-so comedy filler. **
5th Avenue Fun
- Jarrod McDonald
Great cast...Verree Teasdale is always a delight and of course, so is Ginger. What I particularly like about this film, though, is that Tim Holt is cast in a role that is very similar to his spoiled playboy in THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS. Think what a wide-ranging career he could've had if he had not become pegged as a western cowboy.
A very warm movie. Ginger never disappoints you, she always brings her "A" game.
Gold Digger with a heart of Gold
Fifth Avenue Girl is one of my favorite black and White movies. It has great dialogue, very witty, and it is fast-paced (for a 30's film). Everything wraps up perfectly in the end. My favorite small detail is when the wife says "He'd be about 18 now". It's rather quiet you'll have to look for it. That is if you can track down a copy of the movie. I haven't found one yet.
