  • nrh's rating of the film The Fun, the Luck & the Tycoon

    to takes the simplest of premises - this plot would have looked old hat had capra produced it in the '30s - and uses it as a framework for a lovely, well-oiled machine of a film, tossing off extraordinary sight gags (that hiding under the table bit is a marvel), physical exuberance (just watch how nina li walks) and design based lunacy straight out of tashlin. a craftsman's masterpiece.
