In 1948 Britain a win on the football pools was a way out of post war austerity. The football pools was a huge industry employing 25,000 people, with 10 million punters putting their crosses into the little boxes on their coupon. Everyone’s dream was to win the pools and most Britons did not view it as gambling but as a traditional British pastime. Easy Money takes a satirical look at the impact of a pools win on your average British punter in the tough days of the late 1940’s. With humour, suspense and drama the film sought to emphasise the importance of traditional British values of honesty, modesty and hard work!
