Editorial Reviews

Critic Bosley Crowther of The New York Times made it known moviegoers were in luck with Lucky Partners. Likening the film to fine champagne, he wrote: "It belongs to approximately the same vintage as The Awful Truth and My Favorite Wife...a comedy that is dry and sparkling and bubbles till the last drop." Ginger Rogers and Ronald Colman are the effervescent partnership, strangers who share the cost of a sweepstakes ticket. The catch: she'll go on a platonic honeymoon with him if they win. The result: their ticket pays off. So away the two go, with her suspicious fuddy-duddy fiancé (Jack Carson), myriad complications and, of course, Cupid trailing. Uncork the fun!

It's fun, it's thoughtful and it flows well.

This is one of our favorite movies of all time - Ginger Rogers and Ronald Coleman are wonderfully paired.

I don't want to give away the plot for this wonderful film, so I'll just comment on how good it is! Jack Carson gives great support (as usual) to the stars, Ginger Rogers & Ronald Colman, in this well crafted romantic comedy. Filmed in 1941, it was sort of an in-between film for both Ginger & Ronald (Kitty Foyle, 1940 for Rogers & Random Harvest, 1942 for Colman), but don't think for a minute that the stars didn't give it all they had--they were both at top form. Obviously, I wholeheartedly disagree with Leonard Maltin's somewhat disparaging remarks.

Lucky Partners is a long neglected little treasure. Director Lewis Milestone gave this film a light touch to match a warm and humorous story and the lilting charms of its two stars, Ronald Colman and Ginger Rogers. They are wonderful together in this film.

When David Grant (Colman) wishes good luck to passerby Jean Newton (Rogers) for no particular reason at all, things immediately start to go her way. So she cooks up a plan to split a racing ticket that's a million-to-one shot with caricature artist Grant, thinking she might just win. Grant's one stipulation, however, is that Jean go on a sort of honeymoon with him should they win, even though she already has a fiance!

Jean balks, of course, but Grant charms both she and her fiance, Freddie (Jack Carson), into this experiment, as he calls it, and it isn't long before the two find themselves falling in love. The disarming charm of Rogers and Colman and the warmth Milestone ellicits from the story Bonnie Chance by Sacha Guitry carry this film with ease.

A dark haired Ginger and the suave Colman have a nice chemistry and there are some truly magic moments in this film. Colman carrying Rogers over the "Threshold to Whatever You Want" at the request of an older couple and a courtroom scene in which David and Jean question each other on the witness stand about everything and nothing immediately come to mind.

Spring Byington as Ginger's aunt and Harry Davenport as the old judge more than a little smitten and protective of Jean enhance an already delightful film. A nice score from Dimitri Tiomkin creates just the right mood at the right time in this very special film from the 1940's you'll enjoy a lot.

I had to post an opposing (positive) review for "Lucky Partners", as I love this film! Sure, the story would likely never happen in real life, but it's a movie, and it's fun. Ronald Colman's good-humored charm and Ginger Rogers' peppy cheerfulness -- basically, what we love about each of them (as seen in so many of their roles) -- make the film a delight and the protagonists worthy of affection. And the supporting actors are great: Jack Carson, as the jealous fiancé, and Spring Byington, as the dotty aunt, are particularly memorable, and Harry Davenport makes an appearance, too. So, if you love the charming, witty, sweet, slightly zany films of the 1930s-40s (like "Holiday", "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town", "The Thin Man", etc.), or if you love Colman and/or Rogers, you should enjoy this one.

I love Ronald Colman and Ginger Rogers and together they were a smash at least for me. I love old black and white movies, they are much cleaner and funnier and it's as if they were really in love. In todays times if you took out all the nude and sex, you would only have a 20 minute movie and they fall in love after having sex. I like the innocent of falling in love. In this movies Ronald passes Ginger in the street and simply says "Good Luck" where many say "Hello" he changes it up a bit and catches her attention. Ginger goes on her way and someone gives her a beautiful gown. Then she gets the idea to get Ronald to go in with her on a sweep stake ticket. He agrees only if he can take her on a trip with his part of the money. The name on their ticket is picked for the runners up, which her boyfriend decides to sell her half of the ticket. She sees that it is only right to give Ronald half of her sale of the ticket and they go on a trip, fall in love and end up in court with her now ex boyfriend. Funny and delightful and worth watching again and again.
I received my purchase within 3 days of placing my order.

fresh off her Astaire-Rogers phenomenon, and after her incredible success as Ellie-May Adams in Primrose Path, Miss Ginger Rogers gives another wonderfully wonderful performance. She and Coleman have more than wonderful chemistry together, him with his formalness, and her informal charm. Some say her hair was too dark in this film, but I must disagree. It goes to show, that despite the hair color, Ginger was a really wonderful actress. This point is often overlooked, but she didn't win an Oscar for "Kitty Foyle" for nothing. Afterall, it's not the hair, but her INCREDIBLE eyes that work so well. (This goes for every single picture she's in) Ginger had the most incredible, most expressive eyes to ever grace hollywood. She could talk through her eyes, if you cover up the sound and the rest of the face and leave only her eyes, you can tell everything that she is saying. Anyway, back to the picture. It's interesting to note that "lucky partners" is actually very racy for 1940. The whole point of the movie is that Ginger goes on a "honeymoon" with Ronald Coleman, even though she is engaged to jack carson. Also in the apartment, we see Rogers lying face on her bed is a very suggestive position. One of the most touching point in the film is when he carries her off to "the threshhold of whatever you want" while in his arms, and while still walking, he kisses her. Their sensational chemistry really makes this moment work. Afterwards, Ginger's eyes reflect everything and more that just happened. Later, at the end of the film, is where the censors of the day had problems. They state that Ronald Coleman made love to Ginger. Usually they mean kissing, but they specifically say "you kissed this women, and made love to her" there is no getting around it, they mean sex.Read more ›
