The Jackpot – Comedy Movie starring James Stewart

The Jackpot – Comedy Movie starring James Stewart. Also with Barbara Hale, James Gleason.

This is a cute albeit dated domestic comedy wherein Jimmy Stewart, having succumbed to middle-aged, suburban ennui Jimmy wins a ridiculous amount of prizes from a radio quiz show. SO many prizes in fact, that they start to tilt his life off it’s orbit. Bill Lawrence wins a slew of prizes on a radio quiz program. His happiness is short-lived when he discovers he’ll have to sell the prizes in order to pay the taxes on them.
