A man stands to inherit £8,000,000; but only on condition he spends the first million in sixty days
This comedy features a confusing scene early on that was filmed on the London Underground. Jack Watling enters Shepherds Bush Underground station and descends to the Central Line platforms where 1923 ‘Standard’ tube stock is present. He boards the train and has his umbrella destroyed in the train doors before being taken beyond his stop. After he has trouble getting off, the hapless fellow finally arrives at his destination. He leaves again via the same entrance at Shepherds Bush! The film is based on the 1902 novel Brewster’s Millions, which has been adapted into many films.
