The Luckiest Man in the World is a rare foray into directing by Frank D. Gilroy, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright best known for The Subject Was Roses. Phillip Bosco, usually a movie supporting player (though a Tony-winning star on Broadway), is top-billed in the role of a nasty executive. After narrowly surviving a plane crash, Bosco has a complete character and goal turnover. Believing there's some mystic reason for his salvation, he sets out to making up for all the pain he's caused.
