Brewster's Millions | 1985
Clip Name: Brewsters-Interview
This is Chuck Fleming, Action News, in Manhattan.
Now arriving at the Plaza Hotel is Montgomery Brewster, baseball pitcher,...
..who earlier today inherited $30 million tax-free, and is still celebrating.
Mr Brewster, what will you do with that money?
Spend it. No, just kidding.
I'm forming a corporation tonight. Tomorrow, we go into business.
What kind of business is that?
As you know, my business is baseball...
..but since I've inherited $30 million, I have to branch out.
I've always had a soft spot for artists and painters, writers, inventors.
I'm gonna form this business and I want everybody to get a shot.
Even if you've been turned down a thousand times, I'm hiring.
How many people have you hired already, Mr Brewster?
Well, I think you should ask my senior vice president, Spike Nolan.
Yeah. Spike. Uh, I'm paying him $100,000 a month to figure it out.
100,000! Did you hear? 100,000 a month!
Hey, are we on the air now, Chuck?
Yes, right there.
Can I say something to all the people who thought I was a loser?
Thanks, Chuck! Hey, Monty! Monty!
Spike Nolan, the catcher for the Hackensack Bulls.
I would love to accommodate you and your friends,...
..but the top two floors have already been reserved.
They'll be occupied within two weeks.
How much are they paying you?
$100,000 a week.
Wow! Mister, uh...
Mr Carter, I like your hotel. My friends like your hotel.
Do you like this hotel?
I do. I love it.
He loves it, too. Listen. I'll tell you what.
For the next month, I'll pay you...
..$1 million in cash.
