This is a very early French musical which was supposed to have inspired the Marx Brothers' Night at the Opera. I liked this one better. The plot revolves around a horribly in debt young man who wins the lottery but then has difficulty in producing the winning ticket. His best friend, the women in his life, and the city's seedy criminal underbelly are all trying to find the ticket as well, for their own reasons. The main character is hilariously following around throughout the movie by a pack of his creditors who seemingly have nothing better to do - one of whom is an older Max Schreck (of Nosferatu fame), in what I believe is his only other film appearance available for viewing on video.
