Thelma and Patsy are flatmates who face eviction in a few hours. Thelma's out of ideas and leaves it to Patsy, who rubs an oil lamp and wishes for $50,000. Into their flat bursts a thief who says he's being pursued by Trigger Louie; he throws a money belt with $50,000 to Patsy and says he'll be back in an hour. He splits, Trigger Louie catches up with him, and bam! Louie hides, the cops arrive, and the gals wonder what to do. Guns, a fold-down bed, the body, a fire escape, and a dim-witted cop figure in the resolution.Written by
"Hot Money" is a funny and likable Hal Roach short comedy starring Patsy Kelly & Thelma Todd, directed James W. Horne. A runaway thief dumps large of amount money on Kelly & Todd's apartment. The police are searching their room where the thief is hiding somewhere. Kelly as the dumb brunette gets mad and yells most of the time; Thelma Todd as the smart blonde is a bit restrained and understanding.
A harmless fun and a must if you like classic short comedies.
