Double-bill of James Stewart films. In 'Pot 'o' Gold' (1941), Jimmy Haskell (James Stewart) is a music-lover who happens across an excellent new band rehearsing on a boarding house roof. The players are impoverished, but Jimmy sets out to help them find fame and fortune. He encounters an unforseen obstacle, however, in the form of his wealthy Uncle Charley. In the romantic drama 'Made For Each Other' (1939), John Mason (Stewart) is a young New York lawyer newly married to the beautiful Jane (Carole Lombard). Their dreams of a wonderful life together fail to materialise in the real world as they endure one great disappointment after another, beginning with John being called to the office urgently on the eve of their honeymoon! The birth of their son provides a much-needed bright spot, but their marriage is still a far from stable one. One night, driven to despair, they decide to separate, but on returning home discover that their baby is ill with pneumonia... and the only serum that can save him is hundreds of miles away.
