This movie is great but very underated. The plot is that in an effort to subdue a bout of depression, a millionaire playboy (Cary Grant) makes a 50,000 English pound bet with a psychiatrist that he could become a famous business tycoon without using his family's inheritance. Something extremely risky I may add. The movie is based on the popular novel "The Amazing Adventure". I loved this movie since it incorperated a small amount of comedy in with a plot that kept your eyes open. I don't care what to do you have to see this one. Rent it, buy it, just watch it. It's great and definitely one of my favorites.
Thanks For Reading, And I Hope I Helped,
A Spiritual Adventure – Heart Warming Story of Ernest Bliss:
Cary Grant plays modern day Buddha in this classic movie set in London (1937) during the post depression era. Ernest Bliss (Cary Grant) temporarily gives up his riches to become working poor to understand his apparent illness, and seek enlightenment. He rents an apartment from an old lady who is compassionate and understanding. He works for a limousine service company as a driver where he meets a caring worker. He falls in love with a young woman named Frances Clayton (Mary Brian), and learns a crucial thing in life; to be in love, the lady doesn’t have to be beautiful or wealthy, but all heart will do. During his adventure; he sees life, people, poverty, suffering, and sadness. He understands that people in spite of all uncertainties in life find happiness with what they have, and they care about another human being. He gradually realizes that his wealth is an obstacle in pursuit of happiness and to have peace in eternal life. Cary Grant has performed brilliantly with his usual caliber and charm, but I was impressed most with the performance of Mary Brian, who is loving, yet so vulnerable in life. My favorite scenes are when she interviews Ernest Bliss for his first job and later when he proposes to her on the steps of the building Frances works. This is a heart warming movie which doesn’t have Christmas theme or set in Christmas time, but very appropriate for Christmas time viewing
This is one of those forgotten classics that got overshadowed by other films Cary Grant made, but it has its moments. Good plot for a film that is not readily known.
I love this movie on a DVD. The movie is timeless. One of the great actors...in a great story. (Black and White...of coures)Love it, love it.
This movie should have been much more popular than it was. It's about a spoiled rich man who always feels sick until a doctor challenges him to "work" for a year. The challenge works beautifully and has a happy ending.
