Bowery to Broadway is a 1944 American film starring Maria Montez, Jack Oakie, and Susanna Foster. Donald O'Connor and Peggy Ryan also had a small specialty act, and it was the only film they were in together where they didn't have a name or character.

The movie was made to showcase the singing talent at Universal. Montez only has a small role.[2]



In June 1943 John Grant, who normally wrote for Abbott and Costello, was assigned to produce a film to cover the history of Broadway.[3] It was going to be called Hip Hip Hooray and was budgeted at $1 million and shot in color. Edmund Joseph and Bart Lyton were assigned to do the script.[4] In December 1943 it was announced Arthur Lubin would direct.[5]

Filming started 1 May 1944.[6] It was a rare non "exotic" role for Maria Montez.[7]
