Lucky Lady

I write fewer than 5 bank checks a year now, and pay virtually all of my bills online . . . Sure there is danger online, and I try to use long, complicated, non-intuitive passwords for everything online that touches my money . . . Is there a possibility that a twelve year old half way around the world can possibly hack into my money and cause great havoc? Certainly, but danger is a constant part of life . . . I could be killed the next time I get into my car and drive up the street . . . . I could drop dead in any moment from a previously unknown medical problem . . . I could get hit on the head and lose all memory of my life, making my money a very small concern. I have a friend who will not connect any of his money to anything on the internet . . . even more than that, he will not use a credit card in a restaurant or gasoline station or even most shopping stores . . . and he has never owned a bank debit card connected to any of his bank accounts. Can I prove to him that the chances of the terrible things that he imagines about money in the twentyfirst century is not a danger that he should lose a lot of sleep over? No, he may be right . . . or not.

In this crime drama from 1953 London a crippled man owns a petrol station that is run by his son and his step-son. The step-son Ted is a handsome man of the world with a wispy curl of hair dropping across his forehead and enjoys not only the lively nightclubs and horse racing tracks but also the busty blonde nightclub performer called Lucky. One night Ted brings Lucky home to the petrol station and she meets Johnny, Ted's half-brother. Ted calls Johnny a Goop - a dull and boring fellow who minds the station and always smells a bit of motor oil and grease. This leads to that and soon the hot-lips blonde has attracted the Goop . . . er . . . . I mean Johnny, and Johnny takes to Lucky like a duck takes to water. Ted is a bit upset, but hey, sometimes Lucky is a lady, and sometimes not. Well, here comes the bank money thing . . . The crippled father trusts no one but one banker and he handles the petrol station funds once a week with the certain bank manager who has helped him for many years. When the manager is transferred to a different bank and a new man comes in, the crippled father does not trust him and immediately takes every penny of his money out of the bank and puts it in his bedroom at home . . . and at about the same time fast-wheeling Ted is told by a gangster-type that he must pay back a hundred and fifty quid that he owes him, and it must be paid in cash NOW . . . While disabled papa is up in his room with all that cash . . . and depending on Ted to give him the pill that will keep him alive for another day . . . See where this is going? . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show . . . and be careful where you keep your money . . . sometimes the place you think is the most safe is actually not.
