Despite its posh MGM trappings, Becky is at heart a "B" picture, sacrificing pretentiousness in favor of good, solid entertainment values. Sally O'Neil stars as the title character, a pretty New York salesgirl who aspires to a stage career. She gets her chance when she's hired for a Broadway show, working her way up to the leading role and ending up an overnight "smash." One of the fringe benefits of Becky's new-found celebrity is her whirlwind romance with a wealthy playboy (Owen Moore). But her new beau ultimately rejects her, prompting Becky to be more careful in her romantic selections in the future.
