Hale Hamilton stars as the appropriately named Johnny Gamble, a maverick race-car driver. To win a bet, Johnny enters a big-stakes race as a 50-to-one long shot. Since the first prize is a staggering three million dollars, Johnny figures that his take for an afternoon's work at the racetrack is approximately five thousand an hour (hence the title). It is giving nothing away to report that Johnny wins the race. A very standard "outsider makes good" yarn, $5,000 an Hour benefited from an enthusiastic cast and some cleverly written subtitles.
