"Cash" is not only the title but the leitmotif of this fast-moving farce: it's what entrepreneur Edmund Gilbert (Edmund Gwenn) and his family lack; it's what their creditors keep hounding them for; it's what young Paul Martin has found ($100,000 worth); it's what he waves in front of prospective investors in Gilbert's latest scheme. The plot of this quota quickie creaks a bit, although events move along at a good clip in the second half. Good performances help immensely - not just from the two future Oscar-winners in the cast (Gwenn is particularly entertaining, and more manic than we're used to seeing him), but from Clifford Heatherley as a slightly bemused butler and Hugh E. Wright as an investor with a hearty appetite. It's not a classic, but it is a decent example of the kind of fantasy that kept audiences hoping during the depths of the Depression.
