Critic Reviews for Pot o' Gold

Audience Reviews for Pot o' Gold

In this unhappy experiment everyone (but unhappy people) are in on the groove of hep music (which was swing music at the time). It's as uncomfortable to watch as imagining your Grandmother rapping ("Yeah, baby, yeah! Go cat, go!"), and maybe more so. I couldn't make it through it. Maybe you'll do better.

Second rate musical that would be completely forgotten if Jimmy Stewart hadn't been required by contract to be in it. Oh and he sings! Keep an eye out for a very young Art Carney.
