Big Time Kramden
15 September 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Ralph thinks he strikes it big when a counterfeiter leaves a suitcase full of money on his bus. When it is necessary to identify the contents, the crooks back off, waiting to approach the person who found the suitcase. After thirty days, Ralph is entitled to the suitcase and its contents. Of course, he makes an ass of himself, wasting the money, buying superfluous things. Naturally, the bogus bills are going to be discovered and there will be hell to pay. Gleason is wonderful as the windbag Ralph, as he walks around like a king, throwing away hundred dollar bills. Norton, dressed as a chauffeur, is hilarious. It will be interesting to see if there is any follow-up to this episode.
