Lady Luck

Lady Luck

Edwin L Marin (1946)



Our Score
Best known for playing pleasant but undeniably bland characters, Robert Young had one of the longest film careers ever. He attracted interest as a juvenile at MGM in the early days of the talkies, with Oscar-winning Helen Hayes and Norma Shearer in 1931's The Sin of Madelon Claudet. He progressed to the lead in potboilers such as this RKO programme filler, in which he plays a gambler whom Barbara Hale won't marry until he breaks his habit, because her dad, lovable Frank Morgan, comes from a long line of inveterate gamblers. Films like this are pleasant enough time-wasters, but they didn't give Young box-office clout. He eventually achieved international popularity (and massive personal wealth) in two television series during the golden age of American TV, cast in the title roles in Father Knows Best (1954-60) and Marcus Welby, MD (1969-76).


A woman descended from a long line of gamblers attempts to keep her husband on the straight and narrow, but encounters unexpected complications along the way. Romantic comedy, starring Robert Young, Barbara Hale and James Gleason.
