The Girl From Chicago (1932)


A remake of Micheaux's now-lost 1926 silent film The Spider's Web, The Girl From Chicago is another film that explores the cultural rift between the urban and the rural, set in both Harlem and Batesburg, Mississippi.

An undercover government agent on a case in Mississipi meets and falls in love with a beautiful young woman who's being menaced by a local crime boss. He rescues the girl, and they leave Mississippi and head to Harlem, but their troubles follow them: they become involved in the murder of a local crime boss there.
