I continue to be amazed at the creative talent on this board. Great work, Puck, and the same accolade applies to Barbara, who never fails to impress. Keep them coming.

Thanks Barbara and all! :)

Did you know that it's the 60th Anniversary of Lucky Me this year? (It was made and released in 1954)

Image

The film Doris didn't want to make following her huge success in Calamity Jane. And who can blame her, the plot is standard Hollywood B musical, despite it being the 'first musical in CinemaScope'. She'd probably had enough of Warner musicals by that stage and knew it couldn't match the success of Calamity Jane. However, her contract required her to make one more film for them and this is the one they wanted her to do.

And, as has been noted, she still gave it 100% and it's not a bad film - it's fun to watch and very amusing, I think. Mostly down to Doris being in it, along with great support from Robert Cummings, Phil Silvers, Nancy Walker, Eddie Foy, Jr and Martha Hyer.

Doris and cinematographer Wilfred M. Cline on the film's set.

Notes from Wikipedia:
Doris began to suffer from panic attacks before filming Lucky Me, and kept putting the start of the project off, despite Warner Bros.' pushing her to begin. She was also unhappy with the script, writing in her 1976 autobiography, Her Own Story, "Robert Cummings, Phil Silvers, Nancy Walker, and Eddie Foy, Jr. were all talented, funny people, but I knew by now that no amount of talent can overcome an inferior script, especially if it is a comedy." She considered allowing the studio to suspend her rather than doing the film, but, on the advice of a friend, ended up fulfilling her contractual obligation. Nevertheless, the film was physically difficult for her due to the attacks.
The role played by Robert Cummings was originally intended for Gordon MacRae.
Angie Dickinson made her film debut in Lucky Me, having won the chance as the result of a television contest. She has an uncredited bit part in the party scene.

Love the banner from "Lucky Me", Wow, I didn't know it had been 60 years since this movie was made. I knew Doris didn't like the script from this movie, but even though she was suffering from panic attacks, and not liking the script from this movie, she still gave 110%. When she was in a scene, all eyes were focused on her. She has a way of making a so called bad movie turn out pretty good, all because of her dynamic personality.
This is just a little of what I am talking about. Watch her in action doing this cute little song.

The Superstition Song is great fun!

This is a drawing for the dress she wore, as you've both shown above:

One of my favourite lines is at the party that Doris and Eddie Foy Jr gatecrash as a British Lord and Lady and the Martha Hyer character says to Doris:
"It must be exciting being a lady."
And Doris replies: "You should try it sometime..." :lol:

Thanks Dorine - not too much interest in 'Lucky Me' right now, it seems.
Here's one I prepared earlier - not going in any particular direction with this:
