Synopsis

Angel in the Streets is a 1937 part-talkie, part-silent film directed by William Keighley, and starring Kay Francis and Kent Taylor. It was produced by Adolph Zukor’s Famous Players-Lasky (later Paramount), and adapted from John Wexley’s 1934 novel Night Editor.

Production

The film was based on a novel by John Wexley, which was published in 1934. The story was purchased by Paramount in 1935 and assigned to William Keighley. Keighley had directed Francis in The Right to Live (1935) and The Mind Reader (1935), and Taylor had toplined The Glass Key (1935).

The character “Izzy” was played by Kay’s daughter, Barbara.

“Izzy” was based on a real life person, Izzie Stone, a speakeasy owner who operated the El Fey Club in Chicago. Stone was a rival of gangster Al Capone’s, and was killed by Capone’s men in 1932.

Taylor and Francis’s characters both worked for the Evening Star newspaper, and each had a romantic interest in Izzy.

The film was in production from 11 January 1937 – 25 March 1937.
