Money From Home is a 1953 film starring the comedy team of Martin and Lewis. The comedy was their first film shot in color and their only film in 3-D. The picture was premiered as a special preview screening across the US on New Year's Eve, 1953.
Once in Maryland, Nelson falls for the owner (Marjie Millar) of the horse that has been chosen for the "fix". Virgil has also fallen in love, with the veterinarian (Pat Crowley) assigned to the horse. Nelson decides that love should prevail and refuses to go along with the plan. Meanwhile, an English jockey (Richard Haydn), who is to ride the horse, is prevented from performing his job by Schneider's mobsters and Yokum winds up riding the horse to victory.
Money From Home is also the only Martin and Lewis film made in 3-D, having been shot with Technicolor's 3-D camera rig, which exposed six strips of film in synchronization. It was the second and final time the rig was used. The film was also the third and last time one of the team's features was available with a Western Electric, 3-track stereophonic soundtrack. This soundtrack is now lost.
The film was premiered on New Year's Eve, 1953 as a special preview in 322 theaters. Because of a technical issue at Technicolor, pairs of prints necessary for 3-D were not available, so the film was previewed in 2-D. The film went into general release in February, 1954.
Lewis received an additional on-screen credit: "Special Material in Song Numbers Staged by Jerry Lewis." It was the only time during the team's productions that Lewis received creative credit, despite co-writing and co-directing several of the pictures.
