REVIEW: Brief stories tied together by an unlucky tail coat, an interesting opportunity to see some great stars in their prime. The first story is a romantic triangle with Charles Boyer, Rita Hayworth and Thomas Mitchell. The coat moves to another owner, a fanciful tale featuring Henry Fonda, Ginger Rogers and Cesar Romero. The coat is next bought by Elsa Lanchester for her (real-life) husband Charles Laughton playing a down-on-his-luck musician and composer.

It then comes into the possession of a disbarred lawyer Edward G. Robinson who meets a classmate, George Sanders, at a very elegant college reunion. The coat is taken by two gangsters who lose it, and then found by the very poorest of the poor, the black community of the depression racked 1930s played by famed singer Paul Robeson and the great Ethel Waters who go to their pastor, Eddie “Rochester” Anderson, with whom the coat finally brings something good.
