Film: I'll Wait for You
"I'll Wait for You" is a heartwarming, idealistic 1940's movie starring Robert Sterling, Marsha Hunt and Virginia Weidler.

The movie begins with wideboy, gangster, Lucky Wilson, who is the muscles of a gangster mob in 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 farmer's daughter, Pauline Miller. After a short romance, where Lucky neglects to mention his rough background, the police catch up with him, things start to unravel very quickly.

This movie contains examples of:

  • Big Applesauce
  • The Chanteuse: Sally Travers. Although maybe a little more upbeat, Sally would definitely fall into this category for her costume alone!
  • Deadpan Snarker: Lucky, to an extent, especially after he's been shot.
    Lizzie: You're in my bed.
    Lucky: Yeah? Well, I'll buy you another one.
    Lizzie: Does it hurt much?
    Lucky: No, it feels good!
  • Dumb Blonde: Blonde in Elevator. Please don't mention the stake!
    Blonde: Where are we going?
    Lucky: New joint.
    Blonde: Stakes?
    Lucky: I don't know, I've never been there.
    Blonde: I was kinda looking forward to a stake!
    Lucky: Oh, angel, I've got a lot of worries in my business. I can't stand but argue with dames, see?
    Blonde: I just thought a good stake...
    Lucky: Why don't you shut up.
    Blonde: The stakes they got at the place I went...Lucky kisses her to stop her from talking.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Lizzie really doesn't like people calling her that.
  • Everybody Smokes
  • Farmer's Daughter: Pauline and Lizzie
  • Follow That Car: The car chase where Lucky gets shot.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Lizzie
  • Plucky Girl: Lizzie
  • Tomboy: Lizzie
