Mr. Lucky was an honest professional gambler who had won a plush floating casino, the ship Fortuna, and used it as his base of operations. Staying beyond the three-mile limit, where he could operate a gambling ship legally, Mr. Lucky played host to a wide variety of people, all of whom came to make use of his luxurious facility. Helping him run the casino, is his good friend Andamo.
I was nine-years old (and living in New York) when this show premiered, and it quickly became my favorite series. Friday nights meant "77-Sunset-Strip" and then staying up to watch "Mr. Lucky" with a big bottle of Coke and a bag of Fritos. I can still remember the car he drove -- a black 1959 Chrysler Imperial. To me, Mr. Lucky was the epitome of "class."
