The dignified Lewis Stone lets down his hair in a comedy role in the rollicking Too Much Money. Thanks to a series of financial reverses, wealthy Robert and Annabel Broadley (Lewis Stone, Anna Q. Nillson) finds themselves flat broke. They take jobs as dishwashers in a delicatessen, where another of the employees begins flirting with Annabel. When it turns out that the Broadleys still have plenty of money thanks to smart investments, Robert still must duke it out with his rival to win back Annabel's affections (which, like his fortune, he has never really lost). Critics in 1926 were unimpressed by Lewis Stone's attempt to emulate such farceurs as Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd, though they allowed that Too Much Money would get by on its novelty value.
