A Delightful Movie with Greta Nissen at Her Most Charming!
A strangely neglected movie that I would have thought capable of more than satisfying current tastes is the 1926 romantic comedy, "The Lucky Lady". Thanks to stunning sets by Hans Deier, gorgeous costumes by Travis Banton and/or Howard Greer, lustrous photography by Victor Milner, accomplished, fast-paced direction by Raoul Walsh, plus a super-lustrous performance by lovely Greta Nissen in the title role, "Lucky Lady" is a winner. Lionel Barrymore and Marc McDermott are also delightfully charismatic. Admittedly, hero William Collier, Jr., as the naive American abroad in the wastes of Monte Carlo (alias San Guido here) is little more than serviceably handsome, but you can't have everything. It's Nissen's movie! And she is wonderful!
