Goodbye Broadway is a 1938 American film. The movie is based on the play The Shannons of Broadway written by actor (and ex-vaudevillian) James Gleason. A previous film had been made of the play entitled The Shannons of Broadway.


Molly and Pat Malloy, a married couple of famed vaudeville performers on the verge of retirement, arrive in a small Connecticut town to play a show, When they're insulted by the clerk of the shabby local hotel, the Malloys buy the hotel just for the satisfaction of firing him. But this aggravates the local realtor who's had his eye on the property. For revenge, the realtor places an ad in Variety that the Malloys are providing free room and board for any of their eccentric old vaudeville friends who might show up. Many do.
