I'll Give A Million (Daro Un Milione)
One of the most popular of all Italian comedies.
“...a slightly Capra-ish story of a millionaire who becomes disillusioned in the way that fictional millionaires so often do. He masquerades as a poor man, determined to give a million lire (which in those days was worth having) to the first person who shows any sign of really unselfish goodwill towards him. The story is in the episodic form natural to this sort of film, but there is a very lively invention of incident, and the feeling is very well maintained.” Vernon Jarrat, “The Italian Cinema”
