Cassidy’s Girl is a $4M feature film based on the work of David Goodis
New Orleans,1954. You’re Jimmy Cassidy, a war hero and star pilot, living well, dating debutants. That was before you lost everything and wound up driving this crummy bus. At least you have a hot hooch for a wife, Mildred. Too bad she’s worse of a drunk than you. On the same night you split up with her, after beating her boyfriend but good, you pick up a grifter. A hot little stripper. But, women being what they are, Mildred wants you back, and her boyfriend, desperate to keep her, accidentally on purpose causes your bus to crash off the Huey P. Long bridge, on a rainy night. He makes you take the fall, so with the cops hot on your trail, you you make a run for it. Then Mildred puts everything she’d got into getting you back.
