Description by OLDIES.com:
Made For Each Other (1939, B&W):
James Stewart and Carole Lombard play a young married couple who learn that love conquers all in this poignant romantic drama. Newlyweds John (Stewart) and Jane (Lombard) return to New York after a whirlwind courtship. Dreamy-eyed and idealistic, the pair are soon blessed with a newborn son and later are forced to deal with a stream of domestic problems, including John being passed over for a junior partnership and mounting expenses that can't be met. When their son's life is jeopardized, they face a crisis of faith that only strengthens the bond of their marriage.
Pot O'Gold (1941, B&W): 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.
It's a James Stewart double feature as the old charmer stars in the romantic comedy musical POT O' GOLD (1941) and the romantic comedy-drama MADE FOR EACH OTHER. See individual titles for more detailed information.
