Summary
Cecilia is a poor waitress in a dumpy New Jersey diner who goes to movies to escape her brutish husband, Monk, and the realities of the Depression Era life. Her favorite is "The Purple Rose of Cairo." The leading man, Tom Baxter, falls in love with her and steps off the screen to woo her. When news of this gets back to the movie studio, the producers send the actor who played Baxter (also Daniels) to convince Baxter to get back on the screen
