The Bowery

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

In turn-of-the century New York City, Bowery bar owner Chuck (Wallace Beery) and thrill-seeker Steve (George Raft) enjoy finding new ways to insult, prank and outdo one another, their antics typically revolving around some kind of wager. But when both toughs lay eyes on the lovely but luckless Lucy (Fay Wray), their game of one-upmanship turns more serious. Chuck dares Steve to make a death-defying leap from the Brooklyn Bridge, with the former's bar and the latter's life on the line.
