Traditional British 70’s satire meets Classic 50’s transatlantic noir, with a dollop of 80’s B-movie magic. Introducing The Curse of Miss Fortune, a minimalistic cross-genre satire comedy featuring a gullible couple, a sex-mad boss, a seductive femme fatale, an angry landlord, a flirty secretary and a cursed pig?!
