Please Tell Me the Movie Title and Actors!


Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out this movie....there are two, an original and a remake--both by the same director. The main character's name is Dave the Dude. He and his men help an elderly lady down on her luck to look respectable for her daughter's future in-laws who are a well-to-do family from Spain. I thought the names of the movies were "Lady for a Day" and the remake, "Pocket Full of Miracles" but they don't seem to be on the library archive list. I do know that in the remake, Glen Ford plays Dave the Dude and Betty Davis plays the elderly woman. Ann Margaret is in it as well. I really want to know the name of the original, black and white film and if possible who the actors were. Thank you!!


P.S. Both the original and remake were shown on TCM in January but I am not able to get a schedule of January movies.

You're thinking of Frank Capra... He directed "Lady For A Day" back in 1933 and was one of his first big hits. Fast forward to 1961 and Capra concluded his great career by remaking "Lady" into "Pocketful Of Miracles".


Cut and paste this into your web browser and the complete cast listings will come up, thanks to the Internet Movie Database.
