It’s a never-ending conga line when straight-from-Columbus (Ohio) sisters Rosalind Russell and Janet Blair, aspiring writer and actress respectively, move into an exposed-to-the-street apartment in boisterous, 'low-rent' Greenwich Village. Inspired by the real life adventures of on the The New Yorker stories of author Ruth McKenney and her sister. Their apartment building at 14 Gay Street was torn down this year.
