IMDB says: Paramount, 1932. This is the fourth of seven stories in this film, in which a dying tycoon gives million-dollar windfalls to people picked from the city phone directory. “Emily (Alison Skipworth), and Rollo La Rue (WC Fields), a vaudevillian and juggler, are owners of a boardinghouse. They acquire a brand new car, and after a drive, they return with a car wrecked by a “road hog.” After obtaining the million dollar check from Glidden, they purchase a fleet of cars and get even with the “road hogs” about town by having a car-smashing day. Of all the episodes, this is the one most remembered, even long after the movie is over.” Part 1of2 is at www.youtube.com
