Movie Info

Huckster showman Jim Fisk (Edward Arnold) and his faithful partner, Nick Boyd (Cary Grant), become wealthy smuggling cotton during the Civil War, but when they lose their money, the pair move to New York City and establish themselves as stock speculators. As Fisk and Boyd spar over comely actress Josie (Frances Farmer), Fisk engineers a foolhardy scheme against Cornelius Vanderbilt (Clarence Kolb) to corner the gold market, unmindful of the risks to his investors if his plan should fail.

Audience Reviews for The Toast of New York

  • Jan 16, 2010
    This was a decent film starring Edward Arnold, Cary Grant, Frances Farmer and Jack Oakie. The story is set just before the Civil War. Three con men make money during the war. Once the war is over they head to New York to make even more money. Friendships are tested through deals, swindles and love. Edward Arnold and Cary Grant both give great performances. The film is fun. It has that nice mix of comedy and drama. If your a Cary Grant or Edward Arnold fan then check this out. Well worth the watch.
