What is the Story of Anything Goes?
Anything Goes is set aboard the ocean liner S.S. American, where nightclub singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney (with her four angels) is en route from New York to England. Her pal Billy Crocker has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt, but the problem is Hope is engaged to the wealthy aristocrat Lord Evelyn Oakleigh, a match encouraged by Hope’s social climbing mother Mrs Harcourt who is travelling with her. Joining this love triangle on board the luxury liner are Billy’s boss Whitney, Public Enemy#13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick-in-crime Erma. With the help of some elaborate disguises, tap dancing sailors and good old fashioned blackmail, Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope’s heart.
