An Old Shoe for Luck 1923

10 mins United Kingdom

Two quarrelling lovers are reunited in a fun ad for Lux soap flakes. When Marjorie packs for a tennis tournament, her mother puts a jar of honey in her case as a gift. But the 'lucky' old shoe her naughty brother adds smashes the jar, ruining her tennis dress. Disaster! But never fear: thanks to the 'little Lux shepherdess' the dress comes up like new, and so does Marjorie and Norman's romance!
