      "Witty, intelligent and charming"
      - TV Times Film & Video Guide

    • Two old and fabulously wealthy brothers, Roderick and Oliver Montpelier draw a currency note for a million pounds from their bank for a wager. Roderick maintains that it would be quite useless to any poverty-stricken, but honest man.

      Oliver, on th other han, believes that merely by possessing the note - never cashing it - the man could live like a lord. For their experiment the brothers choose Henry Adams (Gregory Peck), a young American whom they find in London, penniless and without friends.

      This classic, sparkling comedy - an updated version of the riotous short story by Mark Twain - sees Gregory Peck giving one of his finest performances aided and abetted by a distinguished cast which includes Joyce Grenfell and Wilfrid Hyde White.
