Under Neon Movie Reviews: 'It Happened on 5th Avenue' (1947)

Movie: It Happened on 5th Avenue
Year: 1947
Rating: 9/10 Stars *********

This 1947 movie is an instant classic! I highly recommend it. The 2nd richest man in the world leaves one mansion for the holidays to head to one of his many other estates for the holidays, all during a depression when many are out of work and looking for places to live. One man has figured the pattern out and alternates squatting at each un-occupied mansion/estate, but this time he makes friends, and before he knows it the mansion is full and the owner has found out. But there is more to this story, and it shades of the recent foreclosure crisis and situation in America.
