Trivia

This was the last of several films which Glenn Ford and Rita Hayworth made together. It was a sign of the times that, whereas Hayworth had always been top-billed over Ford in their earlier films, for this film she was third-billed behind Ford and relative newcomer Elke Sommer. See more »

What a Waste of Talent
3 August 2000 | by Bob-45See all my reviews

Except for the music, THE MONEY TRAP is strictly by the numbers. Third billed Rita Hayworth has maybe five minutes screen time. No matter, she bring what little class this movie has to the screen. My big question is, what is such a terrific cast DOING in this insipid junk? Drawing a paycheck, I guess. Certainly, Glenn Ford, Ricardo Montalban and Joseph Cotton (all then under contract to MGM) were strictly drawing paychecks. This movie SHOULD be seen a reminder of sexual attitudes to which we should NEVER return. That is, whatever males do is OK, but woe be on to a female whom "transgresses," PARTICULARLY if she enjoys it! Otherwise, don't waste your time.
