(1968) Enjoyable screen version of groundbreaking 1940s Broadway musical about an Irish father (Fred Astaire) and daughter (Petula Clark), a lovelorn leprechaun (Tommy Steele), a racially bigoted judge (Keenan Wynn), and a stolen pot of gold, all set in the American South. Burton Lane and Yip Harburg’s songs are the real gold. Director Francis Ford Coppola, pre-Godfather fame, strove to make a traditional musical, with some innovative 1960s flourishes, and the cast is first-rate.
