FULL SYNOPSIS

This all-black film was specifically designed for what were once known as "colored" theatres. The title character, played by [[Performer~P8603~Geraldine Brock~geraldinebrock]], is a country girl who journeys to New York. Her presence attracts every con man and hustler in the Big Apple. After being victimized and exploited by a number of disreputable types, Brock finally wises up-but not soon enough for a peaches 'n' cream happy ending. Yes, the director of Girl in Room 20 is the same Spencer Williams Jr. who played Andy Brown on the early-1950s TV series Amos 'N' Andy; and no, supporting actress [[Performer~P392908~Shirley Jones~shirleyjones]] is not that [[Performer~P392908~Shirley Jones~shirleyjones]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
