Lady Luck can be understood as an amusing allusion to early cinema, given its simple sequence of action, fixed image composition, and short duration of just under three minutes. Humor also plays a role when we see a young woman sitting at a table to repeat a certain procedure a few times: the brute opening of a fortune cookie with the help of a hammer, followed by the reading and eating of the small pieces of paper on which the fortune messages are written.
