Cash Stashers (1953)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Decent short from the Dave O'Brien and Pete Smith team explains why men shouldn't be cheap and hide their money around the house instead of putting it in a safe bank or buying bonds with it. In the film we see various reasons as to why hiding money is so dangerous. One example is hiding the money in an old pair of shoes, which of course the wife ends up giving away. Another example would be hiding it in a pillow only to have your friendly dog eat it up. That will pretty much give you the idea behind this short, which certainly isn't the best from the duo but I'm sure fans will find it mildly entertaining. The screenplay (also by O'Brien) is pretty good as the set ups are pretty entertaining but none of them really pay off with any big laughs. The stuff dealing with O'Brien's pains of trying to find his money in the shoes will put a smile on your face but you won't find yourself laughing out loud. If you have eight-minutes to kill then this is certainly worth you time.
