Finding $100,000 seemed like a big bonanza to Wallace Beery, but he's in for several surprises.
25 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

A delightful comedy centering on Wallace Beery finding a small box with 100 $1000 bills. He's a shiftless, lazy father of six and hasn't worked since the day he married Elizabeth Patterson. Because it would be too suspicious to try to change a $1000 bill, he decides to work to accumulate enough money so that he could start spending his new-found fortune. Until then, he buries it under a tree by the lake. The screenplay is cleverly written, with lots of surprises and some romance between his eldest daughter, Cecilia Parker, and the town's rich banker's son, Eric Linden. But it's Beery's film from the start and is a very enjoyable entertainment.

There's a glaring error in the credits: James Burke is credited onscreen in the role of the bank teller, but if you know the character actors of the 30's, you'll recognize that it was James Bush in the role. Because of the similarity of the names, it's more than likely that it was just a typographical error and that Burke was never even considered for the part (he's not right for it). Another problem I noticed was the character names of the Perkin twins, Caroline and Julia. They are credited onscreen as Sally and Florrie, but they are called Carrie and Julie (probably their real life nicknames) in the film.
