Movie Info

In this sentimental musical drama, Bing Crosby is in jail on a trumped-up charge. Crosby meets a condemned prisoner and promises the doomed man to look after his little girl. The girl's grandfather is also part of the "deal," and soon the footloose Crosby finds himself overwhelmed by his responsibilities.

Audience Reviews for Pennies From Heaven


This is a sweet movie, and I liked Crosby in it, but the other actors aren't so great. Plus, it's got a predictable romance. It could have been better.
