Description by OLDIES.com:
Playing a high-rise window washer with high aspirations, Dick Powell sets the ebullient tone, crooning the title tune and more songs. Ingénue Josephine Hutchinson is the society girl attracted to the working man while hiding her family's deep pockets. Frank McHugh, Allen Jenkins, Ruth Donnelly and more supporting favorites give further proof there's fun ahead.
Josephine Hutchinson is a beautiful heiress bored by her stifling lifestyle. She bolts her family mansion on New Years' Eve and heads for a boisterous nightclub, where she meets blue-collar worker Dick Powell. Hutchinson pretends to be poor, and soon she and Powell are pitching woo. Powell has ambitions to go into business for himself, so Josephine secretly pulls strings to help him get ahead. But when Powell finds out, he renounces the girl and breaks up the relationship. Hutchinson returns to a loveless engagement with a society type, but her father has grown fond of Powell and arranges a reconciliation. HAPPINESS AHEAD isn't exactly a musical, though Dick Powell does sing the title song during the opening credits and later introduces the Warner Bros. cartoon perennial "Pop Goes Your Heart."
