The Cheaters (1945)

Republic Pictures
Directed by Joseph Kane
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

Wealthy, screwball family in NYC conspires to inherit millions from a "rich uncle" who left his fortune to a showgirl. They find the girl and invite her to live with them, needing to hide the fact of her inheritance for a week to get it themselves. Meanwhile, an alcoholic, down-and-out actor that they have taken in as a "charity case" serves as their moral compass. Over-plotted nonsense has a few wacky moments and Christmas theme, but tough sledding.
