Money Talks (1932)

“Look at him, look at him, the highway robber, the gonif, stealing the customers right under my very nose.” – Hymie Burkowitz

Number of Times Seen – 1 (19 Jul 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A Jewish businessman has a month to prove he is destitute in order to receive a very large inheritance, but somehow his fortune and luck continues to increase.

My Take on it – This is a movie that I came across by accident while trying to find more films from the era to add to my repertoire.

The premise reminded me a lot of Brewster’s Millions (1985) and there is a pretty close connection between the two stories.

The cast is great even if they play their characters in a very stereotypical manner.

Love the way that this film has lots of supporting characters who each have their own unique qualities and stand out.

The twins stood out the most to me and were quite enjoyable to watch.

The way that the story unfolds is done in a great way and they constantly find new and exciting ways to keep the story so engaging from start to finish.

The story shows how luck can change things in ways that no one might expect especially when this character who wishes to squander his fortune isn’t able to because of the way that things keep going in his favor no matter how hard he tries for it to not.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The tenth credit in the cast list is for “His Sax Appeals”, a dance troupe managed by ‘Solly Sax’, a character in the film. None of the members of the troupe are named. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
