Cash on Demand is a 1961 British thriller film directed by Quentin Lawrence and starring Peter Cushing and André Morell.[2] The film company Hammer Film Productions invested the equivalent of £37,000 in 2009 currency to produce the film. Columbia Pictures began distribution of the film in the United States on 20 December 1961, and screenings continued until April in some major cities.


Two days before Christmas, a bogus insurance investigator conducts a meticulous small-town bank robbery. A stagy but suspenseful set-piece reworking of the Scrooge story in which an urbane, but ruthless, thief induces the complicity of a fastidious bank manager with threats against his family.
