Pot O' Gold (1941)

I just rewatched a movie that I have had on hand for sometime. I bought it at the dollar store for, you guessed it, $1! It is actually a Jimmy Stewart double feature. I haven't watched the other movie and can't recall it's name, but Pot o' Gold is a wonderful lighthearted ditty. It stars Jimmy Stewart and Paulette Goddard. It's a cute story about a music store owner (Stewart) that reluctently takes up his rich uncle's offer to move to the big city and keep on running the family business in health foods. Upon his first day there he meets a cute little songstress (Goddard) and the rest of the boarding housemates who are in a band. He quickly discovers that his uncle, who hates music, is at war with the boarding house mistress and is trying to get their property. After realizing this battle he tries his best to conceal the fact that he is the nephew of that old music hating grouch. Comedy ensues and fun musical numbers are performed. This movie will leave you smiling and happy feeling. It isn't an emotional jerker, but it is definately fun and happy. Great movie if you can get it. Even better if you can get it at the Dollar Store still.
