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

Bess Flowers, the "Queen of the Extras", appeared in literally hundreds of movies, partly because many in Hollywood considered it was good luck to have her in a movie. For this movie about luck, she appears 3 different locations and times. The first time, she appears next to her name, in the opening musical number where she stands in front of a storefront with the word "FLOWERS" on it. See more
Lucky me! / Down the four leaf clover highway, all the signs are pointing my way. / Yes siree. / For lucky me, lucky me, yes siree. / With a lucky star to guide me, and the one I love beside me. / Life can be, so fancy free! / Don't you wish that you could be... Lucky Me!
