Description by OLDIES.com:

Jimmy Stewart plays Jimmy Haskell, a penniless musician who goes to work for the family business. He discovers that his no-nonsense uncle is trying to evict the company's neighbors - a family of talented musicians whose incessant playing is driving the greedy executive crazy. When Jimmy falls for the band's beautiful singer, he is forced to hide his feelings from his family and his identity from the band. An elaborate scheme to bring the enemies together backfires and Jimmy finds himself in danger of losing his girl, his job and his freedom as the police turn up with an arrest warrant! Jimmy Stewart's comical performance is propelled by the exhilarating song and dance contributed by Horace Heidt and his orchestra. Pot O' Gold also marks the film debut of Art Carney.

Product Description:

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'"

Rating 4.0 Pot O' Gold Movie Lover: from Louisville, KY US -- October, 12, 2004

It seems anything with Jimmy Stewart in it would have to be interesting at least. This little film
is more than interesting. It is actually a lot of fun, with plenty of swing music, and at least enough of a plot to keep you interested. You can't even be too upset with the "villian", in this picture who happens to be playing the part of Jimmy's Uncle. His blustery rantings are quite
comical. I enjoyed the jail scene, the best. I definitely recommend this film.
