A gangster film with a blend of comedy and heart, Mr. Lucky has it all. Joe Adams doesn't play the odds. He makes them. Who would think Cupid would turn the odds against him? With roguish charm and dialogue spiked with Cockney rhyming slang, Cary Grant portrays Joe in a wartime romantic comedy from the director of Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. Luck is on Joe's side when he dodges the draft by taking another man's 4-F status. And he seems to hold all aces when he worms his way into a war relief group and plans to pocket its funds. But larceny gives way to love when Joe finds he's in deep with a winsome charity worker (Laraine Day). And that puts him in deep, deep trouble with fellow con artists. Lucky at cards, unlucky in love? Say it ain't so, Joe!
