Paulette Goddard was clearly a greay dancer - even some of the non-musical moves show her ability to move - especially check out the stair scene when she checks in on Jimmy Stewart, later in the film.

The Synopsis isnt really very accurate. I have watched this movie, and it isnt accurate. My husband came in while I was watching it and said that is some GOOD music. So for the record, it seemed to have all the right elements, comedy, a romance, great music, not too screwball of a comedy either. You will like all the characters. Funny How Jimmy Stewarts character is named and called Jimmy.

In a world full of filth, what a relief to find that the "go

"As a mother trying her best to find decent entertainment fit for children, I depend a lot on the old greats like Jimmy Stewart to deliver a performance that I can be confident will give my children a good example or at least wholesome entertainment. For all those who criticize this movie, I will admit it is not one of Jimmy Stewart's best, but it is decent, charming, and full of pleasant songs. It also gives my kids a glimpse into the World War II/swing music era and gives us a good backdrop for stories about their grandparents.
My children love the songs and have them all memorized. My little girl especially loves singing "Do You Believe in Fairy Tales?" and sings it to our little baby. :-) My older son is all gung-ho to learn to play the harmonica as well. As far as the actual story line is concerned, we don't get into it that much, playing it mostly for the music, but we will get into that as they get older. The moral we have learned and will pass on to the children is that the pursuit of wealth should never become an end in itself, and that a balance is essential to proper mental, emotional and spiritual growth."
A Charming Surprise

"Many classic films which have fallen into the public domain over the years are often unfairly dismissed. Such is the case with this little gem. "Pot O' Gold" is a fun and happy little film starring Jimmy Stewart and Paulette Goddard. Released through Mary Pickford's United Artist company, the two leads are members of two feuding families who fall for each other. The riff is over music and a piece of property Jimmy's music hating Uncle Charly (Charles Winninger) wants so he can expand the lucrative health food business he wants Jimmy to help run.

When Jimmy becomes a hero to the McCorckles, especially Molly (Paulette Goddard), by means of an errantly thrown tomato, he has to hide the fact that he's a Haskel. Horace Heidt, whose band has been practicing at Molly's mom's house, much to Charly's frustration, figures out who Jimmy is and the two cook up a scheme to get Charly out of town and use his radio show as a platform for the band.

Once Molly discovers the truth, however, everything goes south when she announces a hefty cash sum will be given each week to get even for the ruse. Personal and legal chaos results, of course, and when Charly gets wind of what's going on live he hightails it back to the city.

While this wasn't Stewart's favorite, it is bolstered by a charming atmosphere and pleasant tunes. One of those films which has weathered time, it is a fun distraction perfect for a lazy weekend. Proof that even lesser films of yesterday have more charm and entertainment value than most of what we see today."
