Information for this unviewed film was taken from two sources: a January 28, 1970 Variety press screening review, which listed the title as A Run for the Money with a running time of 80 minutes; and a May 22, 1972 Box Office review under the title Take All You Can Get, which listed a March 1972 release and an 81 minute running time. Despite the March 1972 release date listed in the Box Office review, no evidence of public screenings has been located under either title, and it is possible that the film was never released.
According to the reviews, the picture featured relatively unknown actors and was shot entirely in New York City on a $29,000 budget. One specific location mentioned in the Variety review was the Croton-on-Hudson reservoir. According to the Variety review, the character "Glenn Atkins" is killed at the end of the film. The Variety review, which reported no MPAA rating, noted that the film contained several graphic sex scenes between "Glenn Atkins" and several different women, including his girl friend, a fellow employee and the wife of the gang leader. The reviewer described the scenes as "the rawest...yet seen on the screen" and predicted that the picture would receive an X rating from the MPAA. The reviewer suggested that, after the X-rated market had been fully exploited, the scenes could be eliminated and the film released as a lower-billed, "average crime pic." According to MPAA records, the picture was given an R rating when it was entitled Take All You Can Get.
