John Vivyan starred in this series as the titular hero, the suave Mr. Lucky, whose full name was never revealed. Lucky was an adventurous, fun-loving gambler who ran a casino (later a nightclub) out of his yacht — the Fortuna II — which was kept floating in international waters (three miles off shore) to escape government oversight. Despite his disreputable interests, Lucky was for the most part an honest, upstanding citizen. He just had a lot of friends who weren’t. Ross Martin co-starred as Andamo, Lucky’s friend and business associate, who was less willing to risk his neck the way Lucky was. Martin referred to the role as “the most enchanting bit of subsidized tomfoolery ever to come his way.” Nevertheless, the two always managed to get themselves into — and out of — all manner of trouble. Although it ranked in the top twenty-five for the 1959-1960 season this series was nevertheless cancelled after only one season. Complete Series – 6 DVD Set.
