Smart Money was a BBC film made in 1986 which was written by Matthew Jacobs and directed by Bernard Rose. It starred Spencer Leigh, Bruce Payne and Richard Borthwick.


The film is a comedy thriller about computer fraud. Leon, a computer hacker, and Freak, a programmer, team up with Fast Eddie, a video games expert, to get revenge on Lawrence McNeice, who framed Leon for a computer fraud he didn't commit.


Although the movie received mixed to negative reviews,[citation needed] it is notable for its highly accurate computer hacking scenes, using authentic software instead of mock-up graphics.
