Bank teller Johnny Dalton, too poor to marry his sweetheart 'Mibs' Goodhug, saves a big-time bookie from a beating and receives a munificent reward...which just happens to match a mysterious shortage at the bank! Will Johnny's pal, eccentric waiter Emile, get him out of trouble...or in so deep he'll never get out?

Yes, this film can be considered a "B", but the Director, Writers, and stars put togther a very entertaining film, which really mines the talents of all involved. Great to see so much of Groucho, very much in character, and having some very funny bits as a woulda-been financial mogul - he's a waiter in an old Mom & Pop eatery; Frank Sinatra is predictably dynamic - his role could be described as a Junior Bank Executive, whose personal finances have a discrepancy between earnings and dreams; Jane Russell plays the part of Bank Teller Mildred Goodhue, his beautiful but somewhat naive girlfriend, who wants to marry this man, but makes the mistake of being persuaded that money isn't..."only money".
A great black and white print of a minor classic. Even has two excellent songs (the duet from adjacent apartments by Frank and Jane is a real time-capsule entry, something obviously missed by documentary makers).

Russel is capable of much better than this script offered!
