Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

There are no queens and very little Broadway (except for an opening establishing shot) in Queen of Broadway. Instead, this sentimental B-picture is the story of a gambler (Rochelle Hudson), who tries to clean up her act and adopt an orphan (Donald Mayo). She is challenged by the welfare associations, but with the help of tough guy Buster Crabbe, Hudson manages to prove her worth as a foster mother. Like many PRC films, Queen of Broadway looks as though it was shot in two days in someone's basement, but the film is saved by the conviction of the leading actors and some amusing bits from the Runyonesque supporting cast. The film was shown to excess in the early days of TV, and recently popped up on the syndicated series All Night at the Movies.
