Storyline

Fast-talking auctioneer Spot Cash Cutler is content with his Second Avenue existence selling pawned goods for highly inflated prices. One day, a Fifth Avenue society lady picks up a priceless belt buckle for a song at Cutler's shop. Cutler tries to get his cut of the true price, but she makes a counter-offer of an expensive auction house and a scheme to auction off a house full of fake antiques.

Fun Plus A Bit Of New York History

Pat O'Brien plays the character who boasts the tile slogan. He is an auctioneer. He isn't really a criminal but he's not on the up and up, either. Interestingly, he isn't in a small town at a carnival. These auctions are taking in suckers in Manhattan. He's on Second Avenue! Wow, how it has changed since those days! I like O'Brien a lot, in his comic and his serious roles. I have to say that here, though, Lee Tracy could have run circles around him. In some ways this is a post-Code, urban "Half Naked Truth." Ann Dvorak is another major favorite of mine. I would watch virtually, maybe literally, anything she's in just to see her. Here she is kind of wasted: We first see her when she'd down on her luck -- homeless and without funds. I won't give anything away but let's just say that's not totally the way her character ends up.

Claire Dodd is also good. She plays a woman from farther East -- Fifth Avenue -- who takes O'Brien down the garden path.

It's a highly entertaining movie, though not by any means a great one.
