The Girl On The Bridge is a 1951 drama directed by Hugo Haas. When watch maker David Toman (Hugo Haas) is walking on a bridge, he spots Clara Barker (Beverly Michaels), a beautiful woman who is about to commit suicide by jumping. Clara is in despair after being abandoned by her lover, a musician named Mario Venti (Robert Dane), and left alone to raise their daughter Judy (Rose Marie Valenzuela). After David manages to convince Clara not to kill herself, she comes to his shop the next day to thank him and to introduce him to her young child. David instantly adores Judy, because she reminds him of his own children who were killed by Nazis. He convinces Clara to marry him, and she swiftly becomes pregnant. Unfortunately, their marital bliss is soon threatened when Mario and his greedy cousin Harry Olson (Johnny Close) decide to walk back into Clara's life.
