If I Had A Million (1932)

Cast / Credits / Reviews (From the Turner Classic Movies Database)

Based on a story by Robert Andrews, If I Had a Million is a multipart comedy-drama employing Paramount's top directorial and acting talents. Refusing to leave his fortune to his grasping relatives, dying millionaire Richard Bennett selects several people at random from the phone book and bestows upon each of them a check for one million dollars.  In "The Clerk" segment (directed by Ernst Lubitsch) Charles Laughton portrays an office employee whose reaction to his new-found million is a great example of "The Lubitsch Touch" in action.   Lubitsch also served as the production supervisor for this film.
