Money from Home

Overview

Frightening though the prospect may sound, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis appear in Technicolor and 3-D in the musical comedy Money from Home. Cashing in on the success of Guys and Dolls, the script is based on a Damon Runyon story. Martin plays gambler Honey Talk Nelson, whose "markers" have been called in by gangster boss Jumbo Schneider Sheldon Leonard. In need of money in a hurry, Honey Talk tries to honey-talk his gawky assistant-veterinarian cousin Virgil Yokum Jerry Lewis into "fixing" the outcome of an ...

Overview

Frightening though the prospect may sound, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis appear in Technicolor and 3-D in the musical comedy Money from Home. Cashing in on the success of Guys and Dolls, the script is based on a Damon Runyon story. Martin plays gambler Honey Talk Nelson, whose "markers" have been called in by gangster boss Jumbo Schneider Sheldon Leonard. In need of money in a hurry, Honey Talk tries to honey-talk his gawky assistant-veterinarian cousin Virgil Yokum Jerry Lewis into "fixing" the outcome of an upcoming Maryland steeplechase competition. Along the way, Virgil is forced to impersonate British jockey Bertie Searles Richard Haydn, and also gets mixed up with a visiting Arab potentate Romo Vincent and his harem. Pat Crowley and Marjie Millar fulfill the leading-lady obligations, while Dean Martin gets to sing three songs, one of them co-written by Guys and Dolls composer Frank Loesser.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Fans of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis will be amply rewarded by Money From Home, but those unconvinced that the team had any real magic will remain unconvinced by this typical offering. Anyone caught in the middle is likely to find Money moderately entertaining, a mindless little piece that unfortunately goes on a bit too long. (Even with George Marshall's fast pacing, the film begins to drag around the halfway point; the screwball chase that acts as a finale picks the pace up, but even it is a little too predictable to be as madcap as it wants to be.) As with too many films originally filmed in 3-D, there are extraneous bits meant to take advantage of the process which seem odd and out of place when viewed in 2-D. Though based on a Damon Runyon story, there's very little of the distinctive, flavorful patois associated with Runyon; dialogue instead tends toward bad puns and wordplay marked by "clever" assonance and near-rhymes (e.g. "a crocked jock and a bagged nag"). There are a couple of disposable songs mixed in, which at least provide a little variation. Martin and Lewis are thoroughly Martin and Lewis, the former easier to take than the latter, the latter harder to ignore. On the whole, Money doesn't pay off, but it has some individual sequences that are worth the gamble.
