Here's your "Lucky" Day!

LUCKY ME is one of the lesser musicals which Doris Day lent her talents to. It was also one of the last films she made under her Warners contract. The score reunited her with "Calamity Jane" tunesmiths Sammy Fain and Paul Francis Webster.

Day plays a young actress called Candy Williams, stuck in a second-string touring revue, 'Parisian Pretties'. When the troupe is stranded in Miami after failing to pay a restaurant bill, Candy catches the attention of Broadway composer Dick Carson (Bob Cummings). With the usual premise of mixed identities and comic hijinks, the story bubbles away to the delight of audiences.

The score includes several gems including "The Superstition Song" (a gangbusters opening number for Doris), "High Hopes", "The Bluebells of Broadway", and "I Speak to the Stars". Day shares the screen with some of the most talented musical comedy vets (Nancy Walker, Phil Silvers and Eddie Foy Jr.). A pure joy.

The new DVD includes the vintage short "When the Talkies Were Young", the Oscar-nominated cartoon "Sandy Claws", plus the requisite trailer.
