Le Million
dir. Rene Clair, France, 1931, digital video, 81 mins, b/w, French w/ English subtitles

An impoverished artist discovers he’s purchased a winning lottery ticket at the very moment his creditors come to collect. The only problem is – the ticket is in the pocket of his coat, which he left at his girlfriend’s apartment, who gave the coat to a man hiding from the police, who sells the coat to an opera singer who uses it during a performance. By turns charming and inventive, René Clair’s lyrical masterpiece had a profound impact on not only the Marx Brothers and Charlie Chaplin, but on the American musical as a whole.
