Plot

Texas Brooklyn and Heaven Wikipedia

Eddie Tayloe (Madison) is a reporter assigned to the Ft. Worth desk of a Dallas newspaper, and as the two neighboring cities are feuding, therefore has nothing to do. He dreams of becoming a New York City playwright, and a small inheritance from his grandfather gives him his chance. Quitting his job, he begins the long drive. Picking up hitchhiker Perry Denklin (Lynn), also looking for fame and fortune in New York, he shares with her encounters with various eccentric characters. The big city does not work out for either of them, and when Eddie finds Perry working in a Coney Island girlie show, he pulls her out and they find happiness together, buying a ranch back in Texas.

With the film's July 1948 opening, a one-scene bit in the Dallas newspaper office as a copy boy marked the screen debut of World War II hero and future Western star Audie Murphy. His similarly small role in Beyond Glory had been filmed previously, but that production did not see release until September. Mary Grant designed the film's costumes.
