Summary
Former serviceman Monty Brewster learns that a wealthy unknown uncle has died, leaving him eight million dollars. A stipulation in the will demands that he spend the first million in just two months or forfeit the entire inheritance. Desperate to get rid of the money, he starts businesses and makes deliberately bad investments. But things go awry as the ventures begin earning rather than losing money.
