Product Description

The stakes are high when a high-class hooker, Dawn Divine (Goldie Hawn), and a handsome con man, Joe Collins (Warren Beatty), team up for a Hamburg bank heist. They set their targets on the secret stashes of a shady army sergeant, a German drug dealer and a Vegas mobster. But when the crooks realize they've been double-crossed, Dawn and Joe must run for their lives in order to keep the loot.

Amazon.com

Goldie Hawn, freshly launched into stardom via TV's Laugh-In gives a bubbly but nuanced performance in one of her first feature-film roles, $ (also known as Dollars). She and costar Warren Beatty look so darn cute together (as they would again later in Shampoo), and have such terrific onscreen chemistry, that we forgive the writers for needlessly making Hawn's character a hooker. Still, to borrow from Working Girl, Hawn's Dawn Divine has a bod for sin--but also, it turns out, a mind for business, at least the kind of business that Beatty's tousled, charming criminal, Joe Collins, has in mind. The film is set on location in Frankfort and Bavaria, Germany, and Scandinavia, and the glorious feel of Europe in the early '70s is here in all its splendor--and grit. Collins' crime is a devilish international bank heist, complicated by language, communists, the Cold War, and next to no technology. It's a sort of a no-frills Oceans Eleven, without the 11 sidekicks.

$ can't quite decide if it's a farce or drama, but there's no question about its action chops; its chase scene is long and intense, and shot crisply and suspensefully by cinematographer Petrus R. Schlömp. The music is by Quincy Jones and is appropriately hip and rich, and Little Richard(!) sings the theme song, "Money Is…" But the reason to watch this film is to see the great chemistry between Hawn, at the beginning of her film craft, and Beatty, nearing his own peak. And to see a snapshot of the Western world circa 1970--which is truly priceless. Extras include some mini vignettes by Sony Home Entertainment about its "Martini Movies" series, including sly definitions of what makes a leading man ("he never lets the audience see him sweat"), how to pull off a heist, and, helpfully, several martini recipes. --A.T.

I saw this movie on television in the beginning of the 80's. I thought it was great fun then and when I bought the video last year I found it to be even better. Warren Beatty does a great job and so does the other actors. Quincy Jones great score adds to the suspense. My favorite scene is the chase on the ice. A wonderful movie that deserves more attention and respect.

Filmed on location in Hamburg and other northern Europe settings around 1970, Dollars has a great look to it, the story is tight and plausible and the casting is great. The opening is a little confusing as the interweaving storyline is set in motion but it all comes together beautifully a third of the way into the action. There is so much going on in Dollars that multiple viewings will be rewarded, and the soundtrack is one of the best I've heard, especially if you like jazz, and is well matched to the action. Watching these veteran actors do their thing is a treat, so much more substantial than the lightweight junk being put out today. I can't believe this flick is so unknown.

and that one scene with Goldie Hawn, as someone said, how did that get past the censor!? Hilarious.

[1988 Goodtimes VHS: 122 minutes].

Very strong performances by Beatty and Hawn plus an engaging soundtrack lift this hyperactive, semi-farce about international banking. They'll only rob from the rich...and give to themselves.
Beatty is a Bank Security Officer who can't stop muttering to himself no matter who is in earshot and Hawn is effective as a free-lance "Escort" who is a bit insecure in her new role as co-conspirator; she is a few years past her Laugh-In looniness and has come up with an interesting character.
This movie has traveled through the decades in a low-profile manner, which is surprising considering the successful careers of the two stars, plus Director Richard Brooks, and, of course, Quincy Jones.
The finale has some funky action on a frozen waterway, though the plot line has a certain stumbling forward momentum, nicely underscored in the early scenes by two Little Richard songs recorded in 1971 for this enterprise, "Money Is" (would have made a great movie title - seems that the powers-that-be have never decided if it's "Dollars", "The Heist", or "$$$"), and a risque rocker called "Do It - To It", both uptempo.
Richard fans, get this: these are *movie versions*, if you check out your well-worn vinyl, or the tracks revived on a 3-CD set of LR's Reprise sessions, released on Rhino Handmade.

Vietnam era film that's all but disappeared! One problem is the title itself: it's listed as above and also $$$. (As an example, try looking up "The Departed" under "The"). Too bad, because Beatty and Hawn pull off an ingenious bank robbery in Europe, playing "Robin Hood" types preying on the gangland rich. Beatty's racing for safety scenes would make even Matt Damon (as Jason Bourne) jealous. The movie is both exciting and fun, a rare combination in 2007.You'd even think that Timothy Leary wasn't now among the "departed". Try to pick up a copy for the entertainment and/or for a collector's item.

Format: DVD
One of a spate of heist/caper comedies from the early-to-mid '70s ('The Hot Rock,' 'The Anderson Tapes,' 'What's Up, Doc?,' 'Foul Play,' etc.), many involving the top talent of the day, '$' doesn't fare much better or worse than its peers, mostly due to the manifest indecision over what type of animal the picture is meant to be. (What's to blame in these cases-- an overvalued screenwriter reined in by meddling studio execs? the objectives of an autocratic director colliding with those of nervous investors?-- is sometimes more interesting to ponder than the labored mechanics of the film.) This isn't to say you can't have two things for the price of one, but striking an audience-pleasing balance seems always to be the sticking point with these cross-genre affairs: too much action/suspense voids the humor; too much goofiness deflates the stakes; and so on. So back to '$,' which mixes good ingredients (Gert Frobe, Goldie Hawn and a fun little bank-robbery sequence) with bad (Warren Beatty, dull as ever; several poorly drawn background characters; and some very slapdash slapsticks wedged in at uneven intervals) in search of a winning formula, and whose overall effect isn't cohesive enough to constitute anything more than two hours' loose entertainment. As a fan of gritty '70s cinema, however, I must add that I enjoyed Richard Brooks' ('Blackboard Jungle,' 'Elmer Gantry,' 'Lord Jim,' 'In Cold Blood') nod to the kind of guerilla filmmaking that had become popular during the era, complete with kinetic, naturalistic camerawork invoking an urban edginess and underscored by some equally streetwise R&B riffs, making '$' a worthwhile time-capsule piece. 3-minus stars.

Money, a movie which is just about non existent, is a movie that I saw in the theater well over thirty years ago. I have, over the last twenty, tried (in vain) to purchase this movie on DVD. If you look on the two stars filmography, (Warren Beatty Goldie Hawn) this movie is very rarely mentioned. I'm not sure if it's because they considered it a low budget film or neither one wants to remember making it. But, it's really a very good movie. The plot was good, and to my knowledge, had not been done before this film. I think the controversial role of Goldie Hawn, playing a prostitute, may have been a factor in the down playing of this movie, because, it was not long after that Ms Hawn won an academy award for Cactus Flower. Warren Beatty, on the other hand, plays his typical, lover boy role, although he's restricted to only Ms. Hawn in this movie. A bank heist, a couple of crooks (Beatty, Hawn) who are robbing thieves, (the mob, local and military crime bosses) of illegal money, that cannot be reported to the police. Will the crooks figure out who did it? Will Beatty and Hawn get away with it? This all makes for an enjoyable movie, and since it's really not in many rental, streaming, or buying circles, I'm pretty sure it's not been seen two many times since it's initial release. Check it out, it's a movie well worth watching, and for my money, "Dollars" was worth every cent.
