The Girl in Room 20 (1946)


Small-town Texas girl leaves home, family and boyfriend to seek her dream of singing professionally in New York City. She's befriended by a cabby (Spencer Williams) who keeps an eye on her. She eventually, but innocently, gets wrapped up with a married man. His wife shows up and accidentally shoots the young girl. The cabby calls her boyfriend in Texas to come to New York to assist her. She recovers, sings and her boyfriend takes her and her good friends back to Texas.
