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

lucky you if you catch this one
25 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I knew very little about this movie and only recently saw it for the first time (thankstcm) and thoroughly enjoyed most of it. Whether chirping, going for laffs, or getting into heavy drama, Dodo Day is always a joy to watch.

She sure was in this film, portraying a put-upon cutie pie. Her songs, all the Fain-Webster songs in this flick was first rate, but none of them even came close to becoming a hit. The ballads were pretty, and the upbeat tunes were fun.

Adding to the delight of this movie was Bob Cummings, underrated as a comic actor. He did some serious stuff for Hitchcock who, reportedly, was not too fond of him).

Nancy Walker and Eddie Foy Jr. (one of the 7 littles) were great fun but, for me, the most fun was every time Phil Silvers was on screen. On television his 'Bilko' was funnier than most of today's junk. Every breath, expression and utterance are classic comedy. Incidentally, the second funniest TV show of that blessed decade was "Car 54, Where Are You?" Where will you be when this delightful movie shows up again? In front of your teevee - lucky you.
