Tin Pan Alley is a 1940 Oscar-winning musical directed by Walter Lang. In 1915, Tin Pan Alley in New York City is known as the best place to get recognized as a musician. Skeets Harrigan (John Payne) and Harry Calhoun (Jack Oakie) are songwriters desperately trying to make it big in the alley, but they are not having much luck until they meet beautiful singers Katie (Alice Faye) and Lily Blane (Betty Grable). As the sisters sing their songs, Skeets begins to fall in love with Katie, and he promises her that she can sing his new song, "America, I Love You." When Skeets reneges on his promise and gives the song to a more famous singer, Nora Bayes (Esther Ralston), to advance his career, his lie tears the lovers apart. Can the lovers rekindle their romance and get back together despite the pressures of Tin Pan Alley? This classic film includes brightly colored costumes and hit song-and-dance numbers, such as "K-K-Katy," "Moonlight Bay" and "Honeysuckle Rose."
