Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Frank Capra's The Younger Generation (1929) is a partial silent film and part talkie, which was odd when the characters do actually begin audible conversation since nearly the first half of the film is entirely silent w/dialogue cards. Anyways, it's a rags to riches story about a Jewish family moving on up out of the NYC slums to Park Avenue thanks to their successful son and his antiques business. But his father is unhappy and yearns for the old neighborhood. Throw in his rebellious sister and dramedy ensues.
