Junction 88 (1947)





































Starring:

Storyline
In the small town of Junction 88, young Buster Jenkins dreams of songwriting stardom, but his low-paying job as choir-master at the local church is getting no where. He's gotten no response from the songs he sent out under the pseudonym "Hewlett Green" to some big-time music publisher. Buster's even got competition for the hand of his girlfriend, lovely Lolly. Just when his dreams seem to be forever dashed, two well-heeled gentlemen come to Junction 88 looking for Hewlett Green.
