Fred Astaire's last film, this movie (made under the influence of the sixties) is goofy. Some people love the wackiness, others can't stand it. Eli enjoyed himself but Amanda thinks the writers were high on something (maybe it was the menthol-tobacco that the characters were trying to create). How else could they come up with a story about singing tobacco sharecroppers, an Irish man trying to plant his stolen pot of gold close enough to Fort Knox that it will grow more gold, and a white bigot who gets turned into a soul-singing black fellow, all of which happens in Rainbow Valley, Missituky. The leprechaun was the only part worth watching.
