Lady for a Day Blu-ray Disc Description
Story of a soft-hearted gangster who organizes his entire gang of thugs to help transform an elderly, rather seedy apple vendor into a perfect society lady. This treatment of a Damon Runyon story was, next to "It's a Wonderful Life," Capra's favorite among his own films. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress--May Robson and Best Adapted Screenplay.
