Street Scene (1931)

The setting is one anonyomous city block during a sweltering summer, where the residents - Italian and Jew, Swede and German and Irish - serve as representatives of the not-very-idealized American melting pot. There is idle chitchat...idle gossip...jealousy...racism...adultery...and, suddenly but not unexpectedly, a murder.
