The movie follows the story of a taxi dancer and her friends as they try to make it big in show business while navigating the complex world of romance and relationships.

The movie begins with the charming and talented Margie Blake (Vivian Blaine) as she tries to make it big in show business. She is a taxi dancer, and her best friend is a trumpet player named Harry (Harry James). One day, while performing at a nightclub, she catches the eye of a local newspaper editor, Ted Lansing (Phil Brito). Ted promises to help Margie achieve her dreams of becoming a singer, but she quickly learns that he has ulterior motives.

Meanwhile, Margie and Harry are trying to get their band together and land a gig at a big-time nightclub. Along the way, they meet a struggling songwriter named Perry (Perry Como) who is also trying to make it big in the music industry. Margie is immediately smitten with Perry, but he is too focused on his work to notice her advances.

As the film progresses, Margie, Harry, and Perry work together to create a demo record that they hope will launch their careers. However, their plans hit a snag when the record executive they are meant to meet with stands them up. Determined to make a name for themselves, they decide to crash a fancy party hosted by a wealthy socialite named Marie Devereaux (Carmen Miranda). The party is filled with Hollywood celebrities, and Margie and her friends are mistaken for famous musicians. The trio decides to run with the mistake, and chaos ensues as they try to keep up the act.

Throughout the movie, there are various musical numbers that showcase the talents of the cast. Vivian Blaine is particularly impressive as she belts out a number of songs, including the film's title track, "If I'm Lucky."

As the film reaches its climax, Margie must choose between her two potential suitors, Perry, and Ted. She has fallen in love with Perry but is conflicted because Ted has promised to help her achieve her dreams. Margie ultimately makes a decision that leads to a satisfying and heartwarming conclusion.

Overall, If I'm Lucky is a fun, light-hearted movie that will appeal to fans of classic Hollywood musicals.
