Harry Dean Stanton,
The movie's publicity still with Newman and Marvin (IMDb's main page display) was photographed by British photographer Terry O'Neill. (The photograph also appears on the jacket of O'Neill's 2003 compilation coffee-table book "Celebrity"). In the book, O'Neill recounts how when he arrived on the Pocket Money (1972) set to shoot his publicity stills, Lee Marvin was hungover and in a foul mood. Most of the production personnel were steering clear of him. When O'Neill gingerly approached Marvin and introduced himself, Marvin asked, "Are you English?" What O'Neill didn't know at the time, was that Marvin was a lifelong Anglophile - he LOVED the British. After that brief encounter, Marvin's mood changed and, according to O'Neill, he couldn't have been more cooperative for the rest of the photographer's assignment. See more »

Asinyne (excuse me if spelling is wrong) says that Paul Newman's character in Pocket Money is basically the same as the one in the much better Hud. Well I'd advice the afore mentioned to go back and watch Hud again. In that classic movie, Newman plays a son of a bitch. In Pocket money he plays a far different type of character. Hud would have despised Jim Kane. It was a well acted acted movie, although I though Marvin overshadowed Newman. Strother Martin who has acted with Paul Newman on numerous occasions was as usual terrific. I liked the movie, but would not consider it one of Newman's best.I think I recall reading somewhere that the stars didn't get on while making this movie.
