Movie Info

In his only visit to Columbia Pictures, Paramount's resident crooner Bing Crosby stars in a sentimental musical drama. In jail on a trumped-up charge, Crosby meets a condemned prisoner, and promises the doomed man to look after his little girl (Edith Fellows) when he gets out. The girl's grandfather (Donald Meek) is also part of the "deal," and soon the footloose Crosby finds himself with more responsibilities than he cares to handle. Along the way, Bing sings the title song to the girl, to leading lady Madge Evans, and to Us--and never less than superbly. As an added attraction, Pennies From Heaven showcases the matchless talents of Louis Armstrong and Lionel Hampton.more

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.
