SORROWFUL JONES | Out Now

Bob Hope is Humphrey ‘Sorrowful’ Jones, a shifty Broadway bookie who becomes a reluctant foster parent when an anxious gambler leaves behind his 5-year-old girl Martha Jane as a ‘marker’. When the father is killed by mobster ‘Big Steve’ Holloway, Sorrowful decides to hide Martha Jane from the authorities, lest the poor girl get tossed in an orphanage. With the help of his girlfriend Gladys, Humphrey will realize that taking care of a child interferes with his free-wheeling lifestyle… But will he reform?
