365 Movies: Lucky Night Review

Lucky Night stars Myrna Loy and Robert Taylor in this 1939 film. The film is about heiress Cora Jordan(Loy) who is fed up with not meeting the man of her dreams, so she gives up her wealth, in order to find a beau. On her quest to find Mr.Right, Cora meets jobless Bill Overton(Taylor), and the two connect almost immediately. While out and about, the two are so heavily drunk, they end up marrying one another. I felt like this movie, tried too hard to be funny. The dialog was pretty awful and I felt bad that Loy and Taylor were cast in this film. The two are both excellent at comedy but this film was not fit for either of them. I really didn't feel that Loy and Taylor had much chemistry together but they were hysterical to watch, when they were drunk. Henry O' Neill was splendid as Loy's protective Father.

I would just love to see this film but cannot find it anywhere. Robert Taylor and Myrna Loy are wonderful actors and among my very favorites. Thank you for your review!
