His devoted mother supports him all the way as he goes to California where he is a hit at an amateur show. Unfortunately, when his mother becomes terrible ill, he must curtail his plans and return home to New York. There he finds his real break when he is selected to star in Broadway's newest show Lucky Boy. Songs include: "Lucky Boy," "My Mother's Eyes," "Old Man Sunshine," "My Real Sweetheart," "In My Bouquet of Memories," "My Blackbirds are Bluebirds Now," and "California Here I Come."
