Movie Summary
René Lefevre and Anabella are sheer delights, as is everything else in Le million, René Clairs bright and winning early sound comedy. Clair has his actors sing their dialogue in a blithe and breezy way and utilizes a succession of surrealistic and Dadaesque touches to chronicle this lighthearted extended chase, concerning an artist racing through the streets of Paris (an amazing studio set constructed by Lazare Meerson) in order to retrieve a winning lottery ticket left in the pocket of a discarded jacket. Many of Clairs comic embellishments (like the dubbed in sound effects of a football game over a portion of the chase) have been used endlessly in comedies ever since, but in Clairs hands the old jokes still look fresh and magical. ~ Paul Brenner, All Movie Guide
