Brewster s millions

Brewster's Millions is a 1914 American comedy film directed by Oscar Apfel and Cecil B. DeMille and starred Edward Abeles. It is an adaptation of the 1902 novel written by George Barr McCutcheon. The novel had also been turned into a successful 1906 Broadway play of the same name that also starred Edward Abeles. Abeles' success in the play led to his being cast in this film.


Sydney Deane, who played the character of Jonas Sedgwick, made his film debut in Brewster's Millions and in doing so became the first Australian to appear in a Hollywood film. The film is considered lost.
