It's really not that bad.
18 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

I guess that the film wasn't so popular but I may be wrong. The fact is that many people have dislike to "That Lucky Touch" because it's not an action movie (as many of viewers had thought before watching this) but very light and "likeable" romantic comedy featuring Roger Moore, Susannah York, Shelley Winters and Lee J. Cobb.

The plot of the film isn't complexed. Arms dealer, Michael Scott (Roger Moore) prepares weapon transport for NATO. The whole operation is of course top secret, but one very inquisitive journalist, Julia Richardson (Susannah York) discovers what's going on and accidentally gets to know Michael. The problem begins when they fall in love with each other ...

Anyway, I suggest you watch "That Lucky Touch" and that's not only because of a fantastic performance given by Lee J. Cobb, and real good-looking pair Moore-York (they both had played together before in Peter Hunt's "Gold" (1974)) but also because it's a good "lonely-Friday-night" movie and Christopher Miles' gentle direction will make you feel relaxed.
