Movie Info

Beggar Apple Annie (Bette Davis) learns that her daughter, escorted by an aristocratic suitor, plans to visit. It's great news -- except that she has tricked her daughter into believing she is a wealthy socialite. Fearing her true identity will disappoint, Annie petitions a superstitious mobster (Glenn Ford), who thinks the apples she sells are lucky, for help. Hesitant at first, the mafioso is persuaded by his girlfriend (Hope Lange) to disguise Annie, if only long enough to fool her daughter.

Audience Reviews for Pocketful of Miracles

  • Jul 06, 2016
    A top tier cast in Capra's swan song delivers the goods in this urban fantasy that cleverly carries the old moral that it's better to give than receive. While everyone's good in this (nearly half the pleasure is in recognizing who's who in the group) (and Peter Falk did snag a supporting Oscar nomination) it's Bette Davis's transformation at the center that powers the heart of this big, happy puppy let loose in your home.

    Franks Capra's last movie is a affectionate comedy drama about an aging apple-seller who passes herself off as a woman of wealth in order to impress her daughter. Wonderful performances (Peter Falk was nominated for an Oscar) is somewhat undone by film's extreme 136min length.
