Overview
Jimmy, the owner of a failed music shop, goes to work with his uncle, the owner of a food factory. Before he gets there, he befriends an Irish family who happens to be his uncle's worst enemy because of their love for music and in-house band who constantly practices. Soon, Jimmy finds himself trying to help the band by getting them gigs and trying to reconcile the family with his uncle.
Synopsis
It's rare to see a musical comedy which allows an actor of Jimmy Stewart's caliber to exploit his charismatic screen persona, but POT O' GOLD fits this bill. Stewart plays Jimmy Haskell, the owner of a struggling music store whose financial predicament forces him to go into business with his uncle C.J. (Charles Winninger). C.J. can't stand modern music, but his prosperous health food company sponsors "Haskell's Happiness Program," a popular weekly music program on the radio. C.J. is engaged in an ongoing feud with Mom McCorkle's boarding house because of the consistent noise emanating from the band of Horace Heidt, which resides there. When Jimmy falls for Molly McCorkle (Paulette Goddard), one of the band's singers, and takes up residence at Mom McCorkle's, his situation with both Molly and his uncle becomes dangerous--Molly doesn't know Jimmy is a Haskell, and C.J. doesn't know Jimmy is lobbing tomatoes at him on behalf of the band. The romantic moments between Stewart and Goddard are excellent as are the songs, which include "A knife, a fork, and a spoon," "When Jonny toots his horn," and "Do you believe in fairy tales?"
