Fanny Brice begins with her irrepressible youth in New York’s Lower East Side, where she clowns her way through vaudeville, with dreams of making it big despite the discouragement of her friends and neighbors, who tell her that she isn’t pretty enough for the stage.
After meeting Nick Arnstein, a handsome and charismatic gambling man with a gentle side, Fanny immediately falls in love. And with her big break in the Ziegfeld Follies on the horizon, the stardom she has always longed for is within her grasp.
When Nick wins a bankroll, the newly-wealthy couple happily marry. But Fanny has to choose between the show business career she loves, or the adored husband who increasingly resents her success.
