City for Conquest 1940
In the East Side slums of New York City, Danny Kenny, his brother Eddie and Peggy Nash, all childhood friends from the tenements, pursue different paths to climb their way out of the gutter. Danny is content driving a truck until his brother, who dreams of writing a symphony of the city, needs money for music school. To earn Eddie's tuition, Danny accepts a boxing match, where he is spotted by fight manager Scotty MacPherson. Meanwhile, Peggy, seduced by the vision of her name in lights, becomes the dance partner of the despotic Murray Burns, and the pair set out on the vaudeville circuit. Desperate to win Peggy back, Danny decides to make something of himself and accepts Scotty's offer to be his manager....
