This obscure British film is an oddity. In essence a Jewish comedy set in the east end of London.
Abe Pilstein (Julian Rose) business has failed but finds out that he stands to inherit a large sum of money from an aunt in America. The only condition is that he needs to show that he really needs the money. So in 30 days he needs to be almost penniless.
Abe spends whatever money he has on betting on horses, making bad investments, a theatre show, he even tries to throw it out of the window but finds himself getting wealthier.
There is also a subplot of two prizefighters who want to marry his daughter and they take part in a winner takes all contest.
The film is not that far removed from Brewster's Millions. It is also a bit of a revue with several song and dance numbers.
Money Talks is really a curate's egg. It is not a good film as it takes a while before it gets to its main plot. It does have historical significance due to its focus on the Jewish community.
