The Million Pound Note (Man With a Million) Reviews

The Million pound note is a great idea, you can see how and why Brewster's Millions (the second) and Trading Places were both influenced by it. Unfortunately, everything clever about the story is slightly marred by the clumsy visual comedy, particularly the scene where the note is blown away in the wind. It's dated for sure but what really makes it both watchable and lovable are the wonderful performances by some great actors who have long since passed. It's a shame about the ending and the unconvincing love story, but the rest is Gold.

Lite cinema featuring Gregory Peck as a penniless American stranded in London. On a bet, two wealthy bankers give him a million pound note with the stipulation that IF he can go one month without cashing it he can have any job his heart desires (within reason, of course).

Yes, it's a plot riddled with holes but with Peck carrying the film nobody seems to mind. A delightful little comedy.

This enjoyable fable from Mark Twain is a good natured forerunner to the likes of Trading Places and Mr. Deeds. An amusing satire on society and it's measure of a man's worth as the sycophants an honest, intelligent and upstanding working man (Gregory Peck at his most likeable) encounters treat him initially with disdain, which soon turns to obsequiousness once they realise that he is a "millionaire".

A charming comedy set in Edwardian London that plays as you probably would expect. Very much a Saturday matinee movie that, for the most part at least, works well.

I saw "Trading Places" not knowing that the story had already been done. Pretty funny , and really cute .
