The best part of this Technicolor exercise is the light it shines on
high-power business dealings and how these were treated in the
Production Code 1950's-- and is worth a quick few words.
In that Cold War decade, Hollywood discovered the drama of corporation
boardrooms and big business in such films as the ruthless Patterns
(1956), the intrigues of Executive Suite (1954), and the comedic Solid
Gold Cadillac (1956). All in all, these movies hold up well despite the
passage of years. The trick for films of this type was to be realistic
enough with the big money scheming to hold audience interest without at
the same time indicting the upper tiers of capitalism. For to do the
latter would, among other reasons, serve the interests of the Soviet
side of the Cold War then at its peak. As a result, in such movies
conscience or a force for good usually prevails at the last minute over
ruthless business connivings no matter how unconvincing the abrupt
triumph. And that's very much the case in the otherwise routine Cash
At first, McCall is characterized as a corporate vulturea
wheeler-dealer who buys up struggling companies, disassembles them for
profit, and then walks away from whatever communities he may have
destroyed in the process. But, of course, it's hard to make a
sympathetic lead out of such a ruthless character, even for such a
likable personality as James Garner. So the screenplay begins to fudge.
He's next characterized as a dis-assembler whose aim is to build up
anew from the pieces, though the human consequences are not made clear.
And finally, after a thorough conversion, he becomes a full-fledged
business humanitarian putting communities first for reasons that also
remain rather unclear, but does, of course, produce a happy ending.
Thus, the ends of the Production Code, the Cold War, and audience
expectations are duly served.
The movie itself is pretty unmemorable. To me the pairing of the mature
Garner and the rather callow Wood seems a brittle one, no matter how
much the winsome Wood is glamorized. Then too, Garner suppresses his
charming Maverick side in the interests of getting into McCall's
character, but in the process gives up his special appeal as an actor.
On the other hand, it's a fine array of supporting players, especially
Henry Jones whose Bassett- hound face registers an unusual array of
subtle emotions. His is a very different appearance for that
glamour-obsessed time period. Anyway, the movie's a decent enough
entertainment, but outside of its wheeler-dealer instruction manual,
remains pretty forgettable.
