We're Rich Again is a must see!
2 December 2006 | by (Sacramento) – See all my reviews

I concur! WE'RE RICH AGAIN is a delight from the first frame to the last, sadly neglected among it's peers, but definitely worth a look. I ran this film for my movie crowd here in Sacramento and they howled through it, especially the antics of Edna May Oliver and beefcake Crabbe. At the time it was released the critics lambasted Marian Nixon but I think she's a hoot as the oh so talkative cousin. The film survives in pristine condition as well, it looks as if it were filmed yesterday. Billie Burke has several wonderful scenes, one of my favorites is when she gives the butler a quarter and rattles off a huge grocery list, the perplexed servant does his best to assure Burke that he'll acquire everything on the list. Oliver and her polo buddies steal the show, be sure to catch this film!
