Mr. Lucky is an American television series produced by Multicom Entertainment Group (MEG) in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The show originally aired on CBS from 1959 to 1960 and starred John Vivyan as the titular character, Mr. Lucky, and Ross Martin as his sidekick and business partner, Andamo.

The show is a classic crime drama that follows the adventures of Mr. Lucky, a professional gambler and con artist who is always on the lookout for his next big score. Mr. Lucky is a suave and sophisticated gentleman who always looks sharp and has a way with the ladies. However, he is also a bit of a rogue who is always looking for an angle to make some easy money.

Despite his shady past and dubious ethics, Mr. Lucky has a heart of gold and is always willing to help those in need. He is a charming rogue who has a soft spot for the underdog and is always willing to take on seemingly impossible tasks. This is where Andamo comes in - he is Mr. Lucky's loyal right-hand man and together they make an unstoppable team. Andamo is a cantankerous and streetwise character who helps keep Mr. Lucky out of trouble and always has a wise-crack or two up his sleeve.

Throughout the series, Mr. Lucky and Andamo find themselves embroiled in a variety of dangerous and thrilling scenarios. Some of the episodes involve heists, cons, kidnappings, and even murder. However, Mr. Lucky and Andamo always manage to come out on top, using their wit and charm to outsmart their enemies.

The show is set in the glittering world of Las Vegas in the late 1950s, a time when the city was still in its heyday as a center of gambling and entertainment. This lavish and glamorous backdrop provides the perfect setting for Mr. Lucky's adventures.

One of the unique features of Mr. Lucky is the show's opening scene. Each episode begins with Mr. Lucky tossing a silver dollar onto a roulette table and then betting on the number that the coin lands on. This sets the stage for the high-stakes drama that follows.

Overall, Mr. Lucky is a charming and thrilling series that is sure to entertain fans of classic crime dramas. John Vivyan and Ross Martin shine in their roles as Mr. Lucky and Andamo, respectively, and the show's glamorous setting and exciting storylines make it a must-watch for anyone who loves old-school crime dramas.
