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 received my purchase within 3 days of placing my order.
Joanna, now 28, just told me she plans to design her wedding gown based on an outfit Ginger Rogers wore in "Lucky Partners."
I had thought myself capable of writing this review myself. This is an urbane romantic comedy. Joanna says it is a satire on morality within a [cell phone static] within a comedy. As the battery on her phone dies, she starts quoting from the incredibly funny and brilliant lines from "Lucky Partners." There is, for example, the opening meeting between Ronald Coleman and Ginger Rogers.
Ronald Coleman plays the role of a brilliant artist who aristocratically refuses to continue painting in Ronald-Coleman-incredible-diction. (I will never forget Ronald Coleman, in that incredible scene just before they cut off his head in Charles Dickens' Tale of Two Cities: "It is a far far better thing I do than I have ever ever done. It is a far far better world I go to than I have ever ever known." [Boy, I wish I could talk like that.]
Coleman also has eccentric ideas about the institution of matrimony and honeymoons in particular (which he explains to his art dealer who is trying to convince Ronald Coleman to return to painting).
Instead, Coleman then leaves the building, walks down the street and passes the adorable [astonishingly adorable] Ginger Rogers. For no apparent reason, Ronald Coleman wishes Ginger Rogers, a total stranger, "Good luck." "Did you just wish me luck for no apparent reason?"
As Joanna's cell phone dies as she drives home with her fiance Jade Kosmos Phillips, Joanna says, "Did you just wish me luck for no apparent reason?"

Another great Ronald Coleman performance in a story that is slightly offbeat.Published 7 months ago by Lover of English
No film starring both Ronald Colman and Ginger Rogers is to be lightly dismissed, but 1940's LUCKY PARTNERS (RKO), in my opinion, is a misfire. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Allen Smalling

What at first seems like an unlikely pairing between the distinguished Ronald Colman and a young Ginger Rogers works and the romantic comedy's amusing plot leads to fun. Read morePublished on August 10, 2014 by B. Wilson
This is a really enjoyable pairing with Ronald Colman and Ginger Rogers. Jack Carson is also in the film and the grouping is a nice combo. Read morePublished on June 27, 2014 by VintageMovieLover
