For Love or Money was released in 1963 by Universal International Pictures. The romantic comedy was directed by Michael Gordon.
Chloe Brasher is a very wealthy woman with three daughters of marriageable age, and concerned that they make appropriate matches. To make sure that happens Mrs. Brasher has selected the grooms-to-be and gives the assignment to her attorney, Deke Gentry, to make sure they meet and are matched up.
Bonnie is a health addict and is easily introduced and paired with Harvey Wofford. Jan, a free spirit, is also easily connected with Sam Travis. But the trouble begins when Deke tries to make the connection between Kate, who runs a motivational research laboratory, with wealthy playboy Sonny Smith.
Each date Deke arranges between Kate and Sonny doesn’t work out, meaning that Deke often has to fill in for the less than reliable Sonny and Kate and Deke are spending enough time together to fall in love.
It seems that all will end well, until Kate learns that Deke has been hired by her mother.
