AIRED:
When Jamie King arrives in Hollywood, California, from Texas, he dreams of succeeding in show business. First, he'll have to be content with working and living at the aging, once-famous Los Angeles hotel "The King's Tower", owned by his sensible aunt Helen King, and her troublesome husband Junior King. Attempting to ignore the condescending hotel accountant, Braxton P. Hartnabrig, and the dumb bellman Dennis, Jamie vies for the attention of the sexy and shrewd front desk clerk Francesca "Fancy" Monroe.

Meanwhile, due to Junior's negligence and compulsive gambling, the hotel is in serious debt. Junior convinces Jamie to go to a casino and win enough to save the hotel. Jamie has amazing luck in a dice game. Unfortunately, when Jamie quits while he's ahead by throwing the dice down, the dealer thinks Jamie wants to continue betting, and Jamie loses everything.moreless
