Whos that dodging his murderous mama, an equally murderous sheik, and the temptations of a harem full of beauties? Its Brooklyns own Eddie Wilson, who comes to Egypt to claim an inheritance and finds that lots of other folks want a slice of his $77,000,000 pie. In one of his famed Samuel Goldwyn movie extravaganzas, Eddie Cantor sings, clowns and wows em as Eddie. Kid Millions also boasts dynamo Ethel Merman as Eddies supposed mother (lets see, Eddies twenty-five, shes nineteen hmmm), George Murphy and Ann Sothern as young lovers, and a standout Technicolor finale. The fun is irresistible, thanks largely to Cantors screen charisma. Those big rolling banjo eyes, that good-natured exuberance, that combinationof the nave and the risqu, gave him an endearing appeal that carried him through a career of almost fifty years and is still effective today (David Thomson, The New Biographical Dictionary of Film).
