Movie Info

Off-beat and screwy, this fast-paced comedy centers on a mad scramble to find a replacement for a missing family idiot so that the remaining family members can receive their enormous inheritance. The problem arises because the deceased clearly stipulated that the entire family must be gathered to receive the money. But for one daughter, everyone in the family is bonkers. The girl's ding-bat brother is the worst of all and requires a full-time keeper. Still he manages to escape, leaving the desperate keeper to hire a Hollywood stuntman to play the errant doofus. Unfortunately, just as it seems that the scam will go off without a hitch, the stuntman finds himself falling in love with his "sister."

Audience Reviews for Miss Tatlock's Millions

½

A weird comedy of manners in which a stuntman pretends to be the long-absent 'black sheep' son of a wealthy family in order to collect 'his' share of the inheritance. Chemistry develops between him and the sister of the guy he's pretending to be, which gives the film a weird quasi-incestuous element. That makes the film a bit uncomfortable to sit through (though definitely interesting to analyze), but there is nice snappy dialogue as well as entertaining portrayals of the selfish filthy rich people, including Monty Woolley and Robert Stack. Barry Fitzgerald is great, too, as the man guiding the protagonist. Co-written and produced by Charles Brackett, Billy Wilder's frequent collaborator, and directed by actor Richard Haydn, who makes a cameo appearance under the pseudonym 'Richard Rancyd.' Ray Milland has a brief cameo, as himself, at the start of the film.
