| New Deal era film
A film like One More Spring is set firmly in the Depression era 30s and could never be remade again. It's also as a nice, possibly incredibly saccharine view of the human spirit. Even in the 30s I'm not sure people were as nice as they are here.

Of course for a nice picture you need a nice girl and Janet Gaynor was always a nice girl in every film. Broke, unemployed, and starving she gets taken in by a kind pair of men and she agrees with Warner Baxter and Walter Woolf King that there will be no hanky panky. As there was a Code in place now, there was none.

Both Baxter and King are already charity cases. They are living in a shed in Central Park where one of the groundskeepers Roger Imhoff keeps his equipment. I'm not sure but even in the 30s Imhoff letting these two live there might not have gotten Imhoff canned. But the agreed upon price is for unemployed violinist King to teach Imhoff how to play Mother Machree on the fiddle. Of course if he had an ear for music or any talent whatever in that direction it would help. But Imhoff is determined to serenade his missus Jane Darwell with Mother Machree come what may,

Bank president Grant Mitchell after the bank failure of 1933 also comes to live with them. He's rich with some sense of social responsibility, he loses his own fortune to keep his bank from going under.

Fans of Gaynor and Baxter ought to love this film. And if there was ever a film that applauded the New Deal especially it's banking provisions One More Spring is it.
