Shot in the assets
You For Me casts Peter Lawford as a man that people seemingly think he's made of money because he has a lot of it. That's because he was left a whole lot of it by his late father from his fertilizer business. Peter has a lot of that as well. One of his father's charities was the local hospital where Gig Young toils at research when not doing surgery and Jane Greer works as a nurse, a profession she love though the pay stinks.
Lawford has need of the hospital when during a hunting trip he gets shot where his assets are at. A nice load of buckshot has him in surgery where he feels he's not getting his proper share of attention because of the money he gives them.
Of course that sets up the whole romantic triangle of this comedy with Jane Greer getting involved with both heir Lawford and Doctor Young. Guess who she winds up with?
Slight comedy from MGM's B picture unit with a few laughs. In the supporting cast note Kathryn Card as the head nurse who is not one to be trifled with, Howard Wendell who is the officious head of the hospital and butt kisser number one when he's after Lawford's money and Rita Corday who is Lawford's ex-wife and the source of some considerable cash flow problems.
