The relationship between Captain Kidd and Johanna was very moving and mutually beneficial. Captain Kidd was an honorable man determined to keep his pledge to return Johanna to her relatives while Johanna found a person she could trust. Their travels together and the final resolution reinforced a belief that good prevails.

City of Girls

A poor little rich girl breaks away from her parents and their expectations for her life. Set in New York in the ‘40s, Vivian Morris is shipped off to her Aunt Pegs, owner of a shabby NYC theater, where she becomes the costume manager and constant party girl after the evening performances end. Her life of drinking, sex and unconventional behavior end in a disgraceful return to her parents, a short stint of being a good girl, but ultimately a return to Aunt Peg. With many twists and turns, Vivian finds redemption in her later years, loving a man without having a physical relationship and discovering the depth of human caring.
