Storyline

With the moral and financial support of her self-made millionaire father John Vance, coined the Copper King, Jessica Vance ditches her engagement announcement party - the engagement to Jelliffe Blaine who she doesn't love and who she believes doesn't love her, but rather only her money - to find true love from someone who doesn't solely love her for her money. In the working class apartment building into which she moves, she quickly makes a new group of friends who don't know about her wealth, she and one of that group, Chet Madden, who fall for each other. What Jessica likes about him is not only he being a real person, unlike the calculating type that Jelliffe is, but that he wants to make something of himself. He works as a commercial building washer, but is taking business classes at night school in an effort to start his own building washing business. In their love, Jessica knows the longer she waits to tell him that she is heir to millions, the more difficult it will be. But in ... Written by Huggo

okay 1941 love story from Warner Bros
21 May 2008 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Here Comes Happiness was released in March of 1941, so we hadn't been dragged into the war yet. Mildred Coles plays Jessica Vance, the young heiress who isn't so sure she wants to marry the society bigshot that her mother has picked out for her. She gets her own apartment, meets the locals, and tries to find her own prince charming. It's a lot like watching an episode of Father Knows Best - no surprises, no big names, plain, simple entertainment based on misunderstandings. One of Warner Brothers shorties - only 57 minutes. Edward Norris does a good job as one of the suitors. Keep an eye out for William Hopper, the son of Hedda Hopper, as Blaine's original best man. This was one of the last films directed by Noel Smith -- he only made a couple more after this. It's also ironic that they keep talking about going to Honolulu, since in just a few months, terrible things were about to happen there...
