Editorial Reviews

For The First time on DVD


When three down-on-their-luck losers, Claire (Liza Minnelli), Kibby (Gene Hackman) and Walker (Burt Reynolds), come together in a Mexican border town to start a booze-running operation during the prohibition, egos, enemies and envy collide. But through some mysterious alchemy and a couple of gunfights, the three become immensely successful bootleggers and, even more surprising to them, a fully functioning menage a trois.

A throwback to the great screwball comedies of the 1930s, Lucky Lady was written by Willard Huyck & Gloria Katz (American Graffiti) and directed by the great Stanley Donen (Singin’ In The Rain).

1975's "Lucky Lady," starring a winning trio of Liza Minnelli, Gene Hackman and Burt Reynolds has never been on video, a real mystery to many movie fans considering this was 20th Century Fox's BIG Christmas release from that year. Long maligned as an outright dud, this film has actually much to recommend it. I think it may actually come off better today. What threw off a lot of people upon its initial release was its (for its time) jarring mix of low comedy, music, raunch, and downright brutal violence. Hey, it's a picture about RUM RUNNERS, people!

All three stars have great individual and ensemble moments, and there are many laughs to be had here. "Lucky Lady" is a lavish picture; you can see where the money went.

Reynolds in particulr never got his due here. This is a gem of a comedic performance. Hackman delivers the goods. Minnelli has a terrific musical number in the first few minutes, a Kander and Ebb song called "Get While the Gettin' Is Good," which ranks right up there with any of those artists' better-known songs.

Although considered a misfire, "Lady" actually was not a box-office flop, although it didn't set the world on fire. It played for quite a few months after its release and was a durable surprise down South (where I'm from), where it was re-released twice (albeit with different ad campaigns, the new ones pushing the action elements of the movie).

If you are a fan of Liza Minnelli, pick up this one up absolutely. It's a performance that divided the critics (although she was nominated for a Golden Globe), but I think her blonde-bombshell act works beautifully.

Now on to Paramount for Liza's 3 unreleased pictures there: "Sterile Cuckoo," "Tell Me That You Love Me Junie Moon," and a personal favorite, her last big lead in a feature, "Stepping Out" (from 1991)! Hello, Paramount!

I never thought I would see the day that LUCKY LADY would finally be released on DVD! Dreams do come true!
I remember seeing LUCKY LADY on Christmas day 1975 with a packed house. The audience roared with laughter and loved it. It had humor, action, great performances and was just a lot of fun to sit and watch. It was a period piece with a bite. A bit naughty in places, but all in good fun. It really transported you to the period with it's sets, costumes and music. Liza, Burt and Gene seemed to be having so much fun while making the picture even though I had read it was a very difficult shoot on location. Early on I read that George Segal who was originally playing the Gene Hackman part dropped out because he was not pleased with the conditions they were working under. But I am glad they all hung in there and made what I think is a very entertaining, frothy, silly, exciting, slapstick hommage to screwball comedies of the 30's. Here's one LUCKY LADY fan who's thrilled. Pre-order my copy now!

I saw this movie at its' first sneak preview in San Francisco and loved the movie. Then I saw it again on its' regular release and I was astonished! They completely changed the ending of the movie! The orignal ending showed Liza's character many years later after both Gene and Burt were killed thinking back to her earlier years. She has evidently married into wealth and the name of her yacht is Lucky Lady. This ending completely disappeared when the movie went into general release. What a shame. It went from an excellent movie to an ok movie. I hope the dvd will include the original ending.

1975's "Lucky Lady" was probably hoping to make an equally successful film out of what was obviously inspired by "The Sting." So they had the two rogues perhaps a little oddly matched and figured they could even add spice by making the film about a menage a trois, make it a quasi-musical with a few Kander and Ebb songs for Liza as a prohibition cabaret girl (cashing in a on those who still believed in her performance in "Cabaret") in a film about rum runner buccaneers. Believing in the three stars could have counted for something, except that Burt Reynolds was one of them and he was getting near his irresponsible non-acting performances in the "Smokey and the Bandit" films and numerous others where mugging for the camera substituted for acting. Gene Hackman, usually a good actor, seems almost to have surrendered to the impossibility of this film coming out afloat. Liza gives the most professionally competent performance as she probably felt a little responsible with the title and all but she is not good enough an actor to survive with a great performance. Written by the duo who brought us "American Graffiti" in 1973, Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz and a usually great director, Stanley Donen, but Donen had prior brought us the gawking spectacle of Richard Burton and Rex Harrison as two stereotypical homosexuals in "Staircase." There was probably more of a reason why "Staircase" and "Lucky Lady" were never on home video until Shout Factory brought us "Lucky Lady" recently than just oversight. In "Lucky Lady" the three stars bombard us with "irascible" charm that embarrasses us as we are played for stooges who do not need believability in our stories more than the stars laughing and mugging and saying lines about "fish farting.Read more ›
