October 17   Miss Tatlock’s Millions (1948) 101 min.

Ever wondered what an offbeat comedy would be like if the cast were all great “character actors”? This is it, starring John Lund, Wandra Hendrix, Barry Fitzgerald, Monty Woolley, Robert Stack, Ilka Chase, and Dorothy Stickney. After the accidental death of an idiot heir, a Hollywood stunt man (Lund) is hired to impersonate him to help a beautiful heiress (Hendrix) fend off her greedy relatives.

This film was even directed by a character actor: movie veteran character actor Richard Haydn (his only directing credit).
