You know how it is with a Sonja Henie film, you wait and see how they're going to fit in the skating numbers.
In "My Lucky Star," Cesar Romero is George Cabot Jr., the playboy son of a department store magnate. As he and his wife (Louise Hovick - Gypsy Rose Lee - and here's a reason to see the film) are discussing an amicable divorce, she spots the package wrapping girl Krista Nielsen(Henie) who is in Romero's apartment for the most innocent of reasons. In order to avoid scandal and paying millions to get rid of his gold digger wife, Cabot Jr. talks Cabot Sr. into sending Krista to college, where she will wear the department store fashions, thus increasing sales to college kids. Soon she's skating.
And there you have it - it's a pleasant way to pass the time. One of the students at the college is Larry Taylor (Richard Greene), who falls for Krista. Greene was supposedly the big rival of Tyrone Power at 20th Century Fox (though I frankly can't see it), but when war broke out in Europe, he returned to England. Growing up, I remember him as Robin Hood in a TV series.
Greene is attractive, with a very marked dimple and a lovely speaking voice. I think his range was a little limited to be much of a threat to Power, and he's not as good-looking, though he's certainly handsome.
If you want to see Gypsy Rose Lee in a movie and of course, Sonja's great skating, this is the film for you.
