Doppelt oder Nichts: Directed by Theodore Reed. With Bing Crosby, Martha Raye, Andy Devine, Mary Carlisle. According to the will of an eccentric millionaire, one of four randomly chosen strangers will become his heir if he/she can double $5000 by honest means.

“Bing Crosby croons his way effortlessly through this little romp, while Martha Raye and Andy Devine provide the comedy, cloyingly at times. The plot, intriguing if not original, involves a dying millionaire who instructs his lawyers to drop twenty-five wallets containing a $100 bill on the streets of New York City in order to find honest people who will attempt to return them to their owner. Each winner is then given $5,000, and the first one to double that money within 30 days will receive the entire estate: $1 million. The plot is frequently interrupted by musical interludes, since Crosby plans to double his money by opening a nightclub.”
