Product Description

Bring home surefire Disney fun starring classic comedians Dean Jones, Sandy Duncan, and Joe Flynn -- now on Disney DVD! Research professor Albert Dooley (Jones) is stuck with past-due bills and one downy, dense lab duck. But an ordinary bird turns extraordinary when he is accidentally zapped with radiation and casually starts laying the proverbial "golden eggs." Cashing in on newfound riches becomes a sidesplitting scramble as the secret gets out and friends, neighbors, and government T-men mount an all-out quack attack to capture the rare bird. It's heartwarming hilarity that will keep the whole family in stitches!

Amazon.com

Disney’s classic 1971 comedy about the goose that lay the golden eggs returns in digital format, retaining its old-style family-friendliness, slapstick silliness, and good-natured predictability. Dean Jones plays professor Albert Dooley, a lab worker down on his luck, who lives in suburbia with his earnest yet scatterbrained wife Katie (played deliciously by Sandy Duncan). When an under-performing lab duck’s life is in jeopardy, Dooley rescues him to become a family pet and soon discovers that some earlier exposure to radiation has turned the duck’s eggs into gold. The Dooley’s newfound wealth brings its share of pandemonium as they try to keep their proverbial "nest egg" under wraps, especially from nosy neighbor Finley Hooper (Joe Flynn), a government Treasury man. Such low-tech fare is not without touches of brilliance: Duncan gets to deliver the best lines and does so with great panache. If Million Dollar Duck falls short in inventiveness, this small serving of comfort food satisfies with ample amounts of warmhearted cheer. (Ages 4 and older) --Lynn Gibson

Aimee Schaper
This one is up there among Disney's best screwball comedies from the 70s!

THE STORY: Professor Dooley (Dean Jones) and Katie (Sandy Duncan) are a married couple that is having a hard time making it financially. Now to top it off their son wants a dog, but they can't afford it. Dooley is working as a low-level scientist at a laboratory that uses animals as test subjects for intelligence, and his ownh duck subject is a failure. One day the duck gets gamma rays by accident and the boss says, "Get rid of that duck". The duck goes home with Dooley and becomes the boys new pet, Charlie. But trouble starts when he begins to lay golden eggs. The family wants to take the duck for their own use and gets greedy, upsetting the boy. It turns out the duck will only lay eggs for a certain sound and watching Dean Jones try to attempt this sound is hilarious. The government is trying to track down the source of the gold eggs that keep showing up around town. But the party is interrupted by a hostile neighbor (played by Disney regular Joe Flynn) that works for the IRS, and leads up to a wild car chase by the IRS agents and this leads to tons of slapstick humor. Good clean family movie.

TRIVIA & BEHIND THE SCENES: Directed by Vince McEveety. Dean Jones returns for his seventh movie with Disney. Screenplay by by Roswell Rogers, based an original story by Ted Key. Title sequences featured animation by Disney animator Ward Kimball. Filmed at the Walt Disney studios lot. The studio announced auditions at the time for the key roles as... the duck. People from all around brought their ducks, and Disney chose 3 of them to play the part. They were treated like royalty while there, and had recreational swims in the pond at one of the outdoor berms.

I am delighted to see that two of my favorite Disney films have been released on dvd, "Million Dollar Duck" and "The Barefoot Executive." Descriptions of the plots for these movies are already noted here, but I will say that both these films are very enjoyable family viewing. I can remember going to the theater as a child and watching these films, and I still enjoy them today. Nobody's claiming they're the best films ever, or even the best Disney films ever, just good, fun entertainment in the grand Disney tradition.Some have complained about these films not being released in their original aspect ratio's, or being remastered for dvd. Although I would have preferred them released letterboxed as well, neither film was released in a very wide aspect ratio, so they play fine on tv, and as for Disney using the same masters they used for the vhs releases and tv airings, if that's what they did, big deal. Those prints are fine. Sharp, clear pictures, with good color.Sure, it would have been nice to have remastered letterboxed versions on dvd, but be grateful we have them on dvd at all. They've both been a long time coming.

Ah, Disney's Million Dollar Duck. Yes, it's famous as a prime example of Disney's 70's cheese and one of the only three films critic Gene Siskel walked out on. Well, Gene Siskel can eat it, because this movie rocks!

Dean Jones, in my opinion, one of the greatest actors ever, stars as a research scientist, husband, and father who is barely scraping by on his meager income. That is, until one of his lab animals, a misfit duck, eats a strange mixture and wanders into another lab, accidentally becoming radiated. An alchemist's dream come true, the duck then begins to lay eggs with solid gold yolks! The scientist, whose name is Albert Dooley, becomes aware of this, as does his lawyer friend, Fred (Tony Roberts), who becomes his financial partner. With the help of Albert's dizzy wife, Katie, the Dooleys' financial situation starts looking up. But not so successfully blossoming is Albert's relationship with his young son, Jimmy, who is becoming invisible due to his father's gold fever. Another, some would say more serious problem comes up too, as the gold buyers Mrs. Dooley has been selling the egg yolks to decide to inform the government of their strange new acquisitions. Soon, the Dooley's have the U.S. Treasury Department after them, and there's no telling how things will turn out in the end. Though, being a Disney comedy, it's safe to assume it will all work out alright.

That's the story, but how is the movie? Well, like I said, I LOVE it! It's cheesy at times, sure. It has a few moments when the script is just terrible. One scene that comes to mind is when the lawyer/friend character of Fred basically feels he has to explain the joke he is acting out. Something to the effect of, "What am I doing?

Wow, I used to think this was the funniest movie when I was a kid! Sandy Duncan and Dean Jones were always great!

Everything from that Eugene character to that farmer who demanded "Hep me get these ducks back in the pen!" LOL! Too funny.

If you're wanting a little 'value added' with Italian and German dubs (ie. learning those langs and want to hear familiar dialog by native speakers), and have a multi region or Region 2 DVD player, search amazon.de for "Die Millionen-Dollar-Ente." You can select whether you want to hear the movie with English, Italian or German speech before you play the movie.

Most people in America don't realize how enriching their DVD experience can be, since the industry only bundles the english track on the discs sold here. You MUST have a "Region Free" or "Region 2" (sold in Europe & UK) to play the German DVD. Thank the movie industry for wanting to control what you watch and how you watch it. (And to think of the hundreds of dollars Americans spend on tape sets to hear dialog by native speakers in another language.)
I rate this one an 8 1/2 of 10 on the "Rewatchability" scale.
