"...the swingiest singiest danciest romanciest picture of the year!"Dec 20 2012

- Published on Amazon.com
My experience with minor brand DVD companies such as Weinerworld has been satisfactory, as I'm not interested in commentary, deleted scenes or other bonus features, that is, stuff these discs don't offer. Transfers are "best available source" and quality can vary from very good to only fair.
. POT O' GOLD (1941) - James Stewart, Paulette Goddard, Horace Heidt, Charles Winninger, Mary Gordon, Frank Melton (uncredited: Art Carney, Bud Jamison, Nestor Paiva) In a picture loosely adapted from a popular radio program, James Stewart, master of many cinematic genres (including comedy), struggles with the only one he was never comfortable in: the musical. Jimmy performs "When Johnny Toots His Horn" while co-star Paulette Goddard is backed by Horace Heidt's band on "Pete the Piper" and "Broadway Caballero." Stewart also fakes playing the harmonica, but actually took up the instrument as a result of some off-screen tutelage here from Jerry Adler (Larry's brother).
MADE FOR EACH OTHER (1939) - Carole Lombard, Jimmy Stewart, Charles Coburn, Lucile Watson, Eddie Quillan (uncredited: Ward Bond, Raymond Bailey) In this David Selznick production, some comedic touches lighten a melodrama about a young couple who have in-law problems and a baby sick with pneumonia. If a serum can't be flown in bad weather from Salt Lake City to New York, their boy will surely die. (Watch for Raymond Bailey, better known as banker Milburn Drysdale on TV's THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES, as the Utah chemist serum-creator.)
