In this classic adaptation of Mark Twain’s story, two old and extremely wealthy brothers draw a currency note for a million pounds from their bank. They need it to settle an argument. One of them believes that such a note would be useless to any poverty-stricken man, the other believes that just by possessing it (and never cashing it) one could live like a lord. They decide to test their theories, and select a penniless young American (Gregory Peck) to be their victim. His sudden change in lifestyle forms the basis of various comical misunderstandings.
