Delightful post World War II comedy
16 January 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Delightful post World War II comedy about how $1000 sitting in a hotel safe has a profound effect on several town residents when it is mistakenly removed from the safe. Witty script, fast paced and great character acting from Charles Winninger and Gene Lockhart. Probably was a deliberate post-war propaganda message about the value of circulating your money, not keeping it in banks.
