Here's what you need to know, and how to watch:
In "Lucky Stiff", A young down-and-out British shoe salesman named Harry Witherspoon takes his dead uncle to Monte Carlo for the best time of his life — a week of fun, dancing, gambling and sun. If the young man fulfills his uncle's request to the letter, he will inherit the 6 million left to him. If he doesn’t, the money will go to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn.
As Harry races from casino to nightclub to beach to bedroom with his dead uncle, he is chased by a desperate optometrist, an avaricious showgirl, a mysterious Italian playboy and a trigger-happy murderess, as well as a young woman dead set on getting that money for the dogs. Guns go off, champagne corks pop, nightmares come to life, romance blossoms, dogs bark, and everyone sings! A zany, frothy, colorful and fast-paced musical comedy with a very happy ending.
