    Another Wonderful Day in Paradise


    Elly carries her dream of stardom to New York City where after years of unsuccessful attempts, she ends up working in a restaurant in Chinatown. The story unfolds when a well-known Broadway show “The Manhattan Girl” announces open auditions for the lead role. Meanwhile, the miserly landlady Mrs. Chen decides to ground Elly in Chinatown delivering food from sunup to sundown plus closing the restaurant every night. Elly would usually not let the lousy work and “evil” landlady thwart her escape for auditions, but this time she hesitates.
