I'd Rather Be Rich - Sandra Dee, Robert Goulet, Andy Williams, Maurice Chevalier, Gene Raymond, Charles Ruggles - 1964 $26.99US
DVD

An updated remake of It Started With Eve (1941). A young heiress is summoned to the bedside of her dying grandfather. The man's last wish is to meet her fiance, but problems arise when the fiance is delayed and a young chemical engineer is persuaded to take his place. When the grandfather suddenly (and secretly) recovers, he uses the situation to his advantage - playing matchmaker in an attempt to ensure his granddaughter's happiness.



viewer's comments:



- I wish I could see it again right now
This is a great piece of 60's escapism. I'm surprised they didn't have Maurice Chavalier sing the title song instead of Andy Williams and Robert Goulet. Sandra Dee is a rich young woman in America engaged to a night club singer{or owner- I can't remember). She is called to her French grandfather's{ Maurice Chavalier} presumed deathbed. He wants to make sure she is happy. He's convinced that her fiance isn't the right one because he doesn't knock her shoes off when he kisses her. Apparently Sandra's grandma always got her shoes knocked off when her husband {Chavalier} kissed her. Enters Robert Goulet who is a neighbor and sparks fly, helped by her grandfather's sly maneuvering. It was alot of fun and I really enjoyed seeing Andy Williams do a straight acting role. I know I am prejudiced because I adore Andy Williams {I grew up watching his show every week and listening to my Mom playing his records} but I really feel he did a great job. I wish I could see it again, over and over!



- Just shows that you don't need special affects for a great movie!
This is one of my all-time favorites and I am NOT a big fan of musicals (per say). The story has a good plot and the actors were very comfortable in their roles. Maurice most especially seemed to show that he had a blast with this one.



- This is a wonderful movie I want to share with my daughter.
This is an excellent movie. I watched this movie years ago, but still remember most of it. I remember laughing so hard, I cried. The actors were wonderful. Sandra Dee is beautiful and just right for the role of the grand daughter. Maurice, I wish he could have been my grand father. Andy and Robert were the two best good looking guys a girl could chose from. This movie is just pure fun. This movie is great fun for the whole family. Please!!!! Someone release this on VHS or DVD or both.



- Rip Taylor stole the movie
Rip Taylor as the AIRLINE TICKET AGENT made this movie for me.

Highly recommended. Turns out he was WAY ahead of his time. Too bad they never made "I'D RATHER BE RICH 2". Oh well, you can't have everything.



- Goulet and Williams in the same picture....who'd have thought?
I saw this movie years ago,thought it was really good,but haven't seen it since.Two of the most popular singers of the 60's in one movie (plus Chevalier)....cool.If you have ever had the chance to see Andy's wonderful show at Branson,Mo.,he uses (or did use) a clip of himself and Sandra Dee(from this picture)in an absolutely hysterical bit.Put this movie out on video!!



- A wonderfully happy movie. Maurice Chevalier was so much fun to watch that I wish I could see this movie again and again.
This is a light hearted comedy that simply sparkles. Maurice Chevalier was continually humorous and made the whole movie work. Sandra Dee, who played the loyal granddaughter, did an excellent job. Robert Goulet & Andy Williams were just the right blend together on screen. It's too bad this movie is out of print now. Hopefully, in the near future, this wonderful movie will be shown again and I'll be right there watching it!
