Easy Money (1948)

Be careful what you wish for: as this compendium about the perils of getting rich quick shows, money doesn’t always buy happiness.

Here are four stories that show the down side to high living: a family scoops the pools but it nearly tears them apart and a mild mannered clerk wins the jackpot with unhappy consequences; greed and temptation turns honest people into crooks, while a suddenly wealthy man finds himself missing his old life.

Mixing laughter, tears and suspense – and starring some of Britain’s best loved actors (including Jack Warner, Petula Clark, David Tomlinson, Mervyn Johns and Dennis Price) – Easy Money is a true classic of the British screen.
