Lucky Lady (1975)


Lucky Lady
(Stanley Donen, USA)  A couple fail in their attempt to make big money running undocumented Mexicans across the border from Tijuana, so they go with the next best operation, joining up with a shady drifter and taking their boat the Lucky Lady up the western shore with plenty of prohibition-era liquor, overcoming some impressive challenges along the way.  Confused direction ruins what should be a delightful affair, combining gritty violence, a Noel Coward-worthy romance (sans the censorship of his era) with a flavour of retro-jazz-age satire that never finds its footing.  Trailer
