    When wealthy widow Chloe Brasher (Ritter) offers her attorney, Deke Gentry (Douglas), a sizeable sum of money to play matchmaker and pair up the husbands-of-her-choice with her three beautiful daughters, each of whom stands to inherit a fortune, he's convinced he's hit paydirt. But the task proves to be much more difficult than anticipated, especially when he realises that Chloe's idea of the perfect partner for perfectly-formed health addict Bonnie (Newmar) is a dull income tax investigator and that flighty bohemian Jan (Parrish) is to be paired with a prisoner-rehabilitation expert from San Quentin. Even worse, every time Deke tries to set up eldest Brasher daughter Kate (Gaynor) with his playboy pal and food magnate Sonny Smith (Young), he somehow ends up spending the evening with her himself. Love begins to blossom between the pair but mother, money and many mirthful misunderstandings soon stand in the way of the budding romance.

    An infectiously endearing romantic comedy with more than its fair share of laugh out loud moments, For Love Or Money is a perfect comic showcase for its supremely talented cast and only makes one wish that Kirk Douglas had taken on more similar roles during the peak of his estimable movie career.
