Movie Info

Honest French teacher Auguste Topaze (Peter Sellers) is fired after refusing to alter the bad grades of a baroness' grandson. Sensing an opportunity, actress Suzy (Nadia Gray) convinces her lover, corrupt city council member Castel Benac (Herbert Lom), to hire Topaze as a managing director for one of his businesses, arguing that Topaze's well-known honesty will protect the company from suspicion. When Topaze learns he is being used, he decides to swindle his manipulators.

Critic Reviews for I Like Money (Mr. Topaze)

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (3)

  • While it never achieves the status of hidden laugh riot or ignored gem, it's far from a failed experiment.

    June 15, 2020 | Full Review…
  • ...the CinemaScope logo at the beginning promises an ornate and immersive world that, sadly, Mr. Topaze fails to deliver.

    June 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A comedy of ethics that gets off to a sluggish start, picks up, but ultimately sputters across its finish line...worthwhile for the magnificent chemistry of Sellers and frequent foil Herbert Lom.

    June 16, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The essential problem with the film, as it turns out, lies with the material more than anything else... screenwriter Pieree Rouve never quite figures out a way to make this transformation work in either dramatic or comedic terms.

    June 11, 2020 | Full Review…
  • "I Like Money" -- the American title seems to suit, now -- is for Sellers completists only.
