Winner takes all!
This week at The B-Movie Clubhouse Juan picked out a comedy for us from 1979 called Scavenger Hunt. This is an underrated classic and is available only on VHS, and even that is hard to find.
Milton Parker has made millions inventing and selling games. Upon his death, his relatives and domestic staff gather for the reading of the will. However, Old Mr. Parker is a game player to the last, and his will stipulates that a Scavenger Hunt will be held to determine the beneficiaries of his sizable estate. The winning team gets all the money, the rest get nothing.
