Synopsis: Joe (James Cagney) spends a lot of his time at Nick’s Pacific Street Saloon. Tom (Wayne Morris), who credits Joe with once saving his life, stops by regularly to run errands for Joe. Today, Tom notices a woman named Kitty (Jeanne Cagney) when she comes into Nick’s, and he quickly falls in love with her. Meanwhile, a distraught young man repeatedly calls his girlfriend, begging her to marry him. Nick himself (William Bendix) muses on all the various persons who come into his bar, some to ask for work and others just to pass the time.
