Several silent-film favorites briefly extended their film careers in the Poverty Row epic Sheer Luck. Nick Stuart plays a milkman who's "that way" about winsome Jobyna Ralston. The wealthy and powerful villain, Philo McCullough, steals Ralston's heart, then tries to take a few other things. But our hero manages to rescue the girl in the nick of time -- and, presumably, to collect a few 2-cent deposits on his bottles. Two-reel comedian Bobby Vernon plays Stuart's wisecracking pal. It would be easy to say that Sheer Luck is sheer waste: it was certainly easy for critics back in 1931.
