Side Streets is a 1934 American pre-Code romantic melodrama film starring Aline MacMahon and Paul Kelly. A spinster hires, then marries, a destitute sailor who is not always faithful.



The New York Times film critic Mordaunt Hall panned Side Streets, calling it "one of those wearying examples of writing down to what the studio believes to be the intelligence level of certain cinema audiences." However, he note that "Miss MacMahon and Mr. Kelly do all that is possible with their thankless roles. Ann Dvorak and Helen Lowell also make the most of their scant opportunities."[1]
