Texas, Brooklyn and Heaven
Texas, Brooklyn and Heaven (released as The Girl from Texas in the United Kingdom) is a 1948 American romantic comedy film directed by William Castle and starring Guy Madison and Diana Lynn. It is based on the 1943 novel Eddie and The Archangel Mike by Barry Benefield.
Mike (James Dunn), the bartender of the Texas Golden Horse bar in Brooklyn, narrates the story of Eddie Tayloe (Guy Madison) to a new customer. Eddie was working as a reporter assigned to the Ft. Worth desk of a Dallas newspaper. As the two neighboring cities were feuding, he has nothing to do. He dreams of becoming a playwright in New York City, and a small inheritance from his grandfather gives him his chance. Quitting his job, he begins the long drive to New York. When his car breaks down, he meets Perry Dunklin (Diana Lynn), who is hitchhiking with her suitcases. She helps him fix the car, having picked up the skill working with her brother in a gas station, and she joins him for the trip to New York. At first Eddie is wary of her, but the more time they spend together, the more interested he becomes in her. Perry warns him, though, not to fall in love with her.
