Release: January 01, 1994

This comedy, set in the barrios East L.A. is loosely based upon Mark Twain's parable The Million Pound Bank Note. The new version tells the tale of Juan Lopez a nice, but uneducated hombre trying to earn enough money to support his little boy. Though Juan was born in the States, he lacks proper documentation and is sent back to Mexico. Now he sells oranges at an intersection. His life looks hopeless when a limousine pulls up and he is handed an envelope containing a check for one million dollars. He is told that he has one month. If he uses the money correctly he will get an award. Juan is suspicious and takes it to his immigration worker who encourages him to check it out. A Beverly Hills banker almost has apoplexy upon examining the check and Juan knows he has the real thing. Now the good-hearted Juan must avoid the temptations, and the greedy people that suddenly surround him. — Sandra Brennan Paul Rodriguez - Juan Lopez Polly Draper - Olivia Smith Pepe Serna - Jorge/Mr.Ortiz Bert Rosario - Alvaro Jonathan Hernandez - Alejandro Lopez Gerardo - Flaco Victor Rivers - Hector Delgado Edward James Olmos - The Angel Tony Plana - Jorge Rubén Blades - Bartender Cheech Marin - Shell Shock David Rasche - Jeff Liz Torres - Mrs. Delgado Patrick Wright - Henchman Steven Jae Johnson - Klaus Paul Williams - Jenkins Jon Greene - Police Officer Lillian Hurst - Nosey Neighbor Jean Kasem - Party Guest Evelina Fernandez - Mrs. Gonzales Leslie Danon - Patricia Maria Rangel - Anita Anita Ortega - Neighbor Bonnie Paul - Secretary Larry Linville - Richard Dickerson Dianna Miranda - Waitress at Party Julio Oscar Mechoso - Corn Seller
