The Million Pound Note 1954

Beneath the urbane, beautifully Technicolored exterior of this charming, mannered, satirical comedy based on a Mark Twain story, beneath its surface humours and its light and gay atmosphere, is a biting commentary on some of the more abhorrent but inevitable failings of man - the worship of wealth, for instance! Gregory Peck, delightful, is the young man who receives the fabulous note for one month as the result of a wager; on the strength of its paper wealth he receives unlimited credit, wins a fortune and a lovely young wife — charming newcomer Jane Griffiths. 1
