Love's no gamble...the way she plays! But he's got a system all his own...for winning her heart! You'll love Robert Young, Barbara Hale and Frank Morgan in gay, wide-open Las Vegas, in RKO's romantic comedy hit LADY LUCK
When Scott returns to Las Vegas to reconcile with Mary, after their kiss is interrupted by whistling, both of them have noticeably different hair arrangements than when they started kissing. See more »
There was a lot to "Lady Luck" that I liked. However, unlike the other reviews, I felt that the movie went on way too long and after a while I just wanted it all to end. At best, I see it as a time-passer.
When the film begins, there's a prologue where you see relatives of the main characters (actually played by the main characters, Barbara Hale and Frank Morgan) screwing up their lives by compulsive gambling. Now, the film jumps to the present day and Mary (Hale) is at her wits end due to her Grandfather's gambling (Morgan). She is determined NEVER to marry a gambler...and, not surprisingly, meets Scott (Robert Young)...who is a professional gambler. However, he promises never to gamble again and soon the pair marry.
On their honeymoon, only a few hours after their wedding, Mary catches Scott gambling. He thinks it's all for a good cause...she will hear none of his excuses. The film is essentially about the long detour the film takes until the pair are eventually reunited.
So why was I disappointed by the movie? It's because what was going to happen was so obvious and so early on...but it seemed to take forever getting there. In addition, through the process it was rather tough to like the characters. Overall, an excellent idea indifferently executed.
