Storyline

Candy Williams is a struggling performer in a musical troupe, headed by Hap Schneider. Unfortunately, the troupe has fallen on hard times, forcing the members to get jobs cleaning hotel rooms. This all changes when one day Candy catches the eye of celebrity song writer, Dick Carson. Candy has no idea who he is, but, the rest of the troupe, especially Schneider, believes this is their lucky break. When Candy realizes who he really is, she's furious because he deceived her. By this time, Dick has "fallen head over heels" for Candy - this could be a problem, since he is currently dating another girl, Lorainne, the daughter of an oil tycoon. Dick secretly sits through one of Candy's performances, and is impressed, giving him a brilliant idea - Candy could perform the songs from the musical he has been preparing, and which he hopes Lorainne's father will finance. However, this is not going to be easy, since Lorainne has become very jealous, especially, when it comes to Candy getting closer... Written by Kelly

Not her best...
7 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

LUCKY ME is part of a Doris Day collection so I'm glad it's included, but this not her best film. She does what she can with the lame material, as does the rest of the cast, but to no avail. Could have been a cute story, but somehow things go screwed up. Very messy screenplay or maybe too many cuts. Doris is sure bouncy and breezy as usual, and she "saves the day" so to speak. Now working in a Hotel as kitchen workers, where does she get those elegant cloths? Must be working the streets as a side job!! Same for the her three other friends, played by Eddie Foy, Jr, Nancy Walker and the nauseating Phil Silvers. It's a shame all of Doris Day's early films at Warner's are all studio bound. This one calls for location in Miami itself, as did ROMANCE ON THE HIGH SEAS which should have had location work in Rio. Another help to APRIL IN Paris would have if they had actually gone to Paris.
