THE MILLION DOLLAR DUCK (1971)

A research scientist takes home a duck from his lab as a pet for his son to save it from being put down. Before the duck left the lab, however, he was exposed to radiation (how most unexplained things happen in movie land) and it is soon discovered that the duck now lays solid golden eggs. The scientist and his family start trading in the gold eggs around the city to pay off their debts but it isn’t long until the FBI is on his case. Yes, the story is bizarre but overall it was pretty fun. The wife was by far the best character and perfectly cast. There is a lot of slapstick comedy and general silliness. It is good to check it out at least once.
