Biographical drama on the 1920s - 1930s career of singer Helen Morgan (Ann Blyth), from her carnival days to Broadway. With the help of ambitious bootlegger Larry Maddux (Paul Newman) and his partner Benny Weaver (Alan King), Helen finds herself singing in the speakeasies of New York, until married society millionaire Russell Wade falls for her, and introduces her to Broadway producer Flo Ziegfeld (Walter Woolf King). Cast as the lead in SHOWBOAT, Helen is the hit of Broadway and a national recording star. But Larry's ambition continues to take advantage of her fame, and depression over Wade's unavailability leads her to a quick decline into alcoholism, and a sanitarium.

Joe Besser has a brief appearance as a speakeasy bartender.

Widow Jenkins has just sold her farm to three swindlers. Meanwhile, Curly has the uncanny talent of having his wishes come true, and when he wishes for a car, the boys find one... the swinders' abandoned car. Driving to the Jenkins farm, they're treated to a nice meal and greeted by the woman's three beautiful daughters. To repay her for the hospitality, the Stooges attempt to fix the water pump and accidentally discover that the farm is sitting on an oil well. Realizing that the widow's been swindled, the boys set out to stop the crooks and win the hearts of her three daughters.
