"Pot Luck" is a little known comedy from 1936 which features a cast of unknowns. I had absolutely no idea about this comedy but decided to watch because I was curious, and I was pleasantly surprised with what I found.
A criminal hatches a plan to steal a valuable vase from a showcase. The dumb attendant hands it over and from then on he, his sister and a detective try to retrieve the vase. There are some exciting scenes, but then again there are some draggy scenes. On the whole, the movie held my attention quite well (I was not expecting it to).
It is quite funny and clever at times. Of course it is undoubtedly naive, but that doesn't bother me. I do not recommend this to everyone, I'm pretty sure people will be unamused and bored by it, but I enjoyed it and believe it is a little known movie that should have more credit.
