Oscar Movies: $1000 A Minute (1935)

How fast can you make a lot of money?

In $1000 A Minute, a Depression era comedy, Roger Pryor and Edgar Kennedy bet on this idea, and also on how fast they can spend the money.

This typical low-budgeter from B-studio Republic was written by Joseph Fields, who later made a greater impression with his scenario for the 1942 comedy, My Sister Eileen, starring Rosalind Russell.
