Plot Summary

Billionaire Sir Guy Grand (Peter Sellers) thinks nothing of throwing his endless stream of money away.

He pays a traffic cop to eat a ticket, pays the Oxford crew team to sabotage a race and finally fills a vat with feces and money, inviting one and all to keep the latter if they don't mind putting up with the former.
