Marsha Hunt was Fantastic
10 June 2008 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Have always been a great fan of Marsha Hunt over the years and greatly enjoy her acting career and have seen her in Broadway Plays in NYC. Todate, Marsha Hunt is 90 years of age and will be 91 in October of 2008. This picture starts off with a hood named Lucky Wilson, (Robert Sterling) who is a big time gangster who is a tough guy and muscle man for the Mob in New York City. Lucky loves women and fast living and eventually he becomes wanted by the police and his bosses recommend that he take a trip to Conn. to hide out and get away from the heat. Lucky gets shot and is found by a farm family who take him under their wing and of course, Marsha Hunt,(Pauline Miller) appears as the sweet and lovely farm gal who takes care of Lucky and the two of them grow very fond of each other. However, Lucky does not tell her about his past and when a policeman named Lt. McFarley, (Paul Kelly) appears on the scene, things start to change. This is a very nice drama and a very sweet love story which will capture your heart like it did in 1941. Enjoy.
