John Beresford Tipton is a multi millionaire and among the things he does with his money is to give away a million dollars to people he doesn't know. So every week Tipton who is not seen, instructs his assistant, Michael Anthony to go bring the person he chose their check. And he asks them to sign an agreement not to tell anyone how they got the money. And we see how the recipients lives are changed.Written by
We were well on our way to discover who was going to get the next million dollars.
Funny, how the writers of this show would never have the benefactors ask Mike Anthony to stay for a cup of coffee or danish.
The show was absolutely great because it took us into a world of fantasy where we could imagine what we would do with all that money.
A variety of people received the money at random. Did John Beresford Tipton use the phone book? I vividly remember where one such "lucky" person was on death row waiting to be executed for murdering someone. No, he wasn't guilty. P.S. He was spared at the end when his innocence was proved.
You never saw the Tipton character and that made the show even more engaging.
After Mike got the money, you would hear the most rousing musical score which I can still hum to this very day.
Of course, with inflation the way it is-the show would have to be retitled today as the trillionaire and would star among others- Mayor Bloomberg of NYC.
