Fred Astaire takes on his last lead musical role in Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation of this 1940s Broadway musical. The tale centers on Irishman Finian (Astaire), who moves overseas with a pot of gold -- only to be pursued by a leprechaun (Tommy Steele). Meanwhile, Finian's lovelorn daughter, Sharon (Petula Clark), makes a wish that transforms the town's racist senator (Keenan Wynn) into a black man.
