Anything Goes is about hilarity ensuing aboard an ocean liner headed to London from New York. It centers around a stowaway, Billy Crocker who falls in love with heiress Hope Harcourt (not unlike Rose and Jack of Titanic fame). As a twist, Hope is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Billy is aided by his two friends: a nightclub singer and a wanted felon (Public Enemy No. 13) in wooing the heiress of his heart.
