Pot O' Gold
(Manufactured on Demand)
This lesser-known gem is not just for Jimmy Stewart fans. Filled with great musical numbers and a thoroughly amusing storyline, Stewart plays a small-town music lover who reluctantly travels to the city to help his uncle run the family business. Once there, he falls for the daughter of a rival family (think: Hatfields and McCoys), unbeknownst to both parties. That is, until a live radio broadcast ends up getting everyone into trouble! Also starring Paulette Goddard, Charles Winninger (who is hilarious as Uncle Charlie) and bandleader Horace Heidt. Trivia note: This was the first (and last) feature-length production by James Roosevelt, son of then-President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Jimmy's music shop closes and he goes to work for his uncle. He befriends a family who his uncle does not like. They are musicians and Jimmy ends up helping them and tries to reconcile them with his uncle.
