Streets of new york abe lincoln of 9th avenue 1939 full movie
Streets of New York is a 1939 American film directed by William Nigh.
The film is also known as The Abe Lincoln of Ninth Avenue, and The Abraham Lincoln of the 4th Avenue.
"Jimmy" (Jackie Cooper) and crippled "Gimpy" (Martin Spellman) run the corner newsstand. Spike (David Durand), a neighbourhood delinquent, doesn’t like it, on his turf, and does everything he can to get them into trouble, and disrupt their circulation.
When they get in trouble, Judge Carroll (George Irving) tries to help them out. He doesn’t want Jimmy going bad, like his big brother, the racqueteer, 'Tap' (Dick Purcell), while Jimmy is trying to go to school and teach himself to be a lawyer, like his hero, Abraham Lincoln.
Jimmy has to choose between the right thing, and family, when his brother comes to him for help.
