Critic Reviews for The Million Pound Note (Man With a Million)
Audience Reviews for The Million Pound Note (Man With a Million)
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".
