Description by OLDIES.com:

Henry Tyroon likes what wealth can bring, but that isn't why he spends so much time pursuing it. "You do it for fun," he explains. "Money's just the way you keep score."

James Garner scores big as Henry, a flimflammer who lands in New York City after his Texas oil well comes a duster, needing a million or so in pocket money to pay his debts. Soon, he also hopes to land a blue-eyed blue chip: a stock analyst (Lee Remick) pressured by her firm to unload a worthless stock. Can Henry come up with a plan to turn what's worthless into the hottest thing on Wall Street? The market for wit and charm is a sure thing in this mix of romantic comedy and business-world satire. Thirty years later, Garner would play a wheeler dealer of another era to award-winning effect as the CEO in Barbarians at the Gate.

Product Description:

A fast-thinking, slow-drawling Texas oilman trying to raise a quick million, heads for the cash-lined canyons of Wall Street where he joins forces with an ambitious stock analyst.

Plot Synopsis:

The world of Wall Street and its wheeler dealers take their "share" of jabs in this comedy. Wealthy Texan Henry Tyroon is an ethics-free fast-talker, who comes to New York posing as a hard up investor, in order to hustle a loan of a few million dollars. But he's smitten after meeting pretty security analyst Molly Thatcher. Molly's unscrupulous boss Bullard Bear falls for Tyroon's act, and sells him lots of useless stock. So imagine Bullard's reaction when the stocks turn out to be worth LOTS of money...
