''I'll Wait for You'' is a heartwarming, idealistic 1941 film directed by Robert B. Sinclair, starring RobertSterling, MarshaHunt, and Creator/VirginiaWeidler.

The movie begins with wideboy [[NeighbourhoodFriendlyGangsters gangster]] Lucky Wilson (Sterling), who is the muscles of a gangster mob in [[BigApplesauce New York]]. He goes around intimidating new business owners and picking up "dames". In an attempt to escape from the police, Lucky takes a trip to Salisbury, Connecticut. On being shot, a farm family take him in and help him get better, during which time Lucky falls for the sweet [[FarmersDaughter farmer's daughter]] Pauline Miller (Hunt). After a short romance, where Lucky neglects to mention his rough background, the police catch up with him, things start to unravel very quickly.
