Two 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 useless to any poverty-stricken, but honest man. Oliver, however, believes that merely by possessing the note and never cashing it, a man could live like a lord. For their experiment, the brothers choose Henry Adams, (Gregory Peck), a young American who they find in London, penniless and without friends. This classic, sparkling comedy, an updated version of a 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.
