"Hoboes Bumper and Acorn are enjoying their annual holiday in Florida when they meet fellow vacationer John Hastings. John is the mayor of New York City and an old friend of Bumper, who is known as the mayor of Central Park because he is the convivial leader of the bums. The vacationers return to New York, and while Bumper happily greets his pals, including the politically-minded street cleaner Egghead, John prepares to reunite with his sweetheart, June Marcher. John had quarreled with June when he saw her giving her old boyfriend Len money to help him begin a new life. John had misunderstood the situation, but June convinced him that it was innocent. After John lays the cornerstone of a new school, he goes to the Central Park Casino, where he lunches everyday, and tips Bumper as he opens John's car door. While Bumper, Egghead and Acorn lunch among the trash cans out back, John meets June. John slips a $1,000 bill into June's purse as a reconciliation gift, but his gesture goes awry when her handbag is accidentally put in Egghead's rubbish barrel. Later that night, John refuses to believe that June lost her purse and accuses her of giving the money to Len. June's tearful pleading that she is innocent and that Len has left town is useless. The next morning, Bumper finds June's purse with the money in it and gets her address from a postcard, but when he arrives at her apartment, he discovers that she has moved away. John receives a goodbye note from June and, after rushing to her apartment, finds that Bumper has the purse but that June is gone. A distraught John gives Bumper the money to divide among his friends and begins to search for June. Later that night, Bumper is walking in the park and sees June try to commit suicide by jumping into the river. He rescues her and hides her from a policeman, but the shock has given her amnesia. Not remembering who she is or what she was running from, June falls in love with her rescuer, who calls her 'Angel.' Determined to give June the best of everything, Bumper takes June to stay with his carriage driver friend Sunday and his wife, and takes a bank job arranged by John. After his first day of work, Bumper visits June but is called away by Sunday, who needs help getting the drunken mayor home. When they reach John's apartment, he talks about the wonderful girl he lost and shows her photograph to Bumper. The heartbroken Bumper recognizes his Angel and realizes that she belongs with John. Bumper then takes John to see June, and at the sight of him she regains her memory and faints. When she awakes, she cannot remember how she got to the Sundays' apartment or who Bumper is. As John comforts June, Bumper sadly leaves, but when he returns to the park, he realizes he is in his rightful place as Acorn and Egghead welcome him home"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

The imperfect lady( Visual )

"In Middleford, England, in 1892, underpaid variety show dancers Millicent Hopkins and her friend, Rose Bridges, go in search of a meal at the tailor shop of Rose's father. Mr. Hopkins disowned Millie when she became an actress, and now throws her and Rose out. While riding in a cab, Rose and Millie pass a political rally for liberal candidate Clive Loring, who seeks refuge in the cab when he is heckled. When Clive invites Millie and Rose to tea, they pretend to be ladies, and Clive is impressed with Millie's views on women's rights. The next day she attends his rally and misses her acting troupe's train. After she vows to give up acting, Millie's father reconciles with her. She spends the next day with Clive, and they fall in love. Clive's class-conscious older brother, Lord Belmont, convinces Millie that, for the sake of Clive's career, he must marry within his class, and she returns to the stage. One night, Millie tries to avoid seeing admirer Lord Montglyn after the show, and leaves with Rose while they are still in their stage makeup. When the women are mistaken for prostitutes by a constable, Millie accepts a stranger's offer to take refuge in his nearby apartment, number 17, which is Millie's lucky number. The man, Jose Martinez, turns out to be an accomplished pianist from Spain with a penchant for lavender perfume, who has become impoverished in England. Although Millie declines his advances, Jose maintains a good humor and plays one of Chopin's nocturnes for her. After hours of innocent conversation, Millie returns home. The next day, Jose is arrested for the murder of a moneylender named Edward Simpson, whom Jose had visited before he met Millie, and Millie is his only alibi. Clive, who has won a seat in Parliament, eventually locates Millie, and they marry. During a reception given by Lord Belmont, Rose warns Millie that the police are looking for her so that she can testify at Jose's murder trial. That night, Clive sees that Millie is disturbed by lavender-scented linens and questions her about it, but she denies its importance. The next morning, when a Scotland Yard detective named Carston visits, Millie denies knowing Jose. Lord Belmont, suspicious of Millie, attends the opening day of the trial and learns that the missing witness was superstitious about the number seventeen and liked Chopin's Nocturne. At home that night, Lord Belmont tricks Millie into admitting those two facts, and she flees to Rose's apartment. Clive now believes Millie is guilty of improper behavior, and tells Rose that although his and Millie's marriage is over, Millie has a moral obligation to come forward to save Jose's life. Jose is found guilty, and on the day of his sentencing, Millie enters the courtroom. With Clive in the audience, Millie testifies that she spent an innocent night with Jose to escape the police. The confession makes headlines across London, and stuffy members of Parliament call for Clive's resignation. Clive defends Millie's character to them, and later finds Millie at her father's shop and asks her to return to him"--AFI catalog, 1941-1950
