| The charms of Warren Hymer
In The Money is one of those Depression Era films where a formerly prosperous and idle family who lived on the dividends of a successful business. It has a dopey charm to it that makes it acceptable viewing for today.

Of course you have to really suspend disbelief that some idle rich girl would marry a pug fighter like Warren Hymer. But that's what Sally Starr does and later on her older and a bit more intelligent sister Lois Wilso takes up with his manager Skeets Gallagher.

As for Gallagher he's trying to urge his fighter back in the ring, but Hymer has decided he wants to be an actor and not just any actor, but a classical one. You have to hear him reading those lines from Hamlet that Laurence Olivier brought to the screen. It's a scream.

Hymer and Gallagher in another way prove to be this family's salvation and Arthur Hoyt sees his daughters married off. As for sons Harold Waldridge and Frank Coghlan I don't see much prospects for them other than being wastrels.

In The Money is a funny, but terribly dated Depression Era comedy with the lack of production values associated with a Poverty Row Studio.
