Thank Your Lucky Stars

Thank Your Lucky Stars

Thank Your Lucky Stars is a 1943 American musical comedy film made by Warner Brothers as a World War II fundraiser, with a slim plot, involving theater producers. The stars donated their salaries to the Hollywood Canteen, which was founded by John Garfield and Bette Davis, who appear in this film. It was directed by David Butler and stars Eddie Cantor, Dennis Morgan, Joan Leslie, Edward Everett Horton and S. Z. Sakall.

Plot

Theater producers (Horton and Sakall) try to stage a wartime charity extravaganza, “Cavalcade of Stars”, only to have the production taken over by the egotistical “fussbudget” Eddie Cantor. (Cantor has Dinah Shore under contract, and the only way they could get him to agree to her appearance was by making him Chairman of the benefit committee.) Meanwhile, an aspiring singer (Dennis Morgan) and his songwriter girlfriend (Joan Leslie) conspire to get into the charity program by replacing Cantor with their look-alike friend, tour bus driver Joe Simpson (also played by Eddie Cantor).
