The fashion industry and Paris provide the setting for a comedy surrounding the mistaken impression that Joanne Woodward is a high-priced call girl. Paul Newman is the journalist interviewing her for insights on her profession.
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 »
This is an excellent movie. Everything is about character development here. Newman's character has a different name but its basically Hud a few years down the road and a lot worse for wear. Newman and Marvin are great as always. If you are looking for lots of action, car chases, or romance look elsewhere my friends. This is a character study and a very good one. Newman is a down but not quite out cowboy and Marvin is his hustler buddy. They try to pick up some quick cash by working a shady cattle deal. Strother Martin and Wayne Rogers are very good as a couple of fly by night businessmen that Newman has the bad luck to associate with. The scene where Newman shakes down Martins character is hilarious. Another great scene is when they tell some Mexican cowboys that they came to Mexico to buy some chili peppers. This is a true to life modern western with no six guns but its fully loaded with charm and real world insight. Great movie!!!! Good acting and writing throughout.
