Lunedi Lunacy

What better way to start the week – a little late – than the great Charles Laughton doing what all of us wanted to do at work this morning. (Sorry if the quality is a little rough but I couldn’t find any other version.)

This is the briefest segment in a film I have always loved: If I Had a Million.  The premise has surfaced in movies and television – how a sudden windfall of money affects people.  Several of the episodes are classic – W. C. Fields and Allison Skipworthy in an 1932 car chase sequence; Charlie Ruggles wrecking havoc in a china shop; May Robson turning the tables on a tyrannical matron in an old folks home; and Laughton under the direction of the equally great Ernst Lubitsch showing us how Monday’s should really start.

On this day in 1893: Lizzie Borden is acquitted of the murders of her father and stepmother.
