Cockney con artist Marcus Pendleton (Sir Peter Ustinov), just out of prison, replaces an insurance company's computer programmer and sends claim checks to himself in various guises at addresses all over Europe. Meanwhile, he falls in love with inept secretary and frustrated flutist, Patty Terwilliger Smith (Dame Maggie Smith).Written by
In this movie, Patty Terwilliger Smith (Dame Maggie Smith) takes Willard C. Gnatpole (Bob Newhart) shopping, where she is seen trying on clothes and buying an outfit for twenty pounds sterling at the Apple Boutique on Baker Street, London, a boutique owned and operated by The Beatles. The boutique, which was the first venture of their Apple Corps Ltd. company, and featured a large psychedelic mural on the external wall, was only operated for several months in 1968 before being closed down, and the contents given away to the public for free. This movie provides one of the few rare filmed glimpses of the boutique's interior. See more »

So you're a traffic warden now? That's a nice steady job.
Yeah, I got fired today.
Well, I haven't the heart to give anyone a ticket. It's wicked trying to park out West. I let them treble park right along the Strand, see.

Hot Millions is a great movie in every way. A fun, offbeat story with wonderful performances by four of the best professionals ever to work in the business. Peter Ustinov is brilliant, as usual, and Maggie Smith---definitely one of the greatest actresses of all time--- is a total delight. Karl Malden and Bob Newhart round out the cast and are also perfect. If you want a movie that has perfect casting, this is it. What is so impressive is the way these people work off each other in such a natural and effortless way, creating lots of laughs and fun moments throughout. Peter Ustinov was a genius with a wonderful sense of humor and this is one of his most memorable performances. The direction, photography, and editing are also first-rate, and it's a great time capsule of London in the '60s. It's definitely on my all-time favorites list.
