Melvin and Howard

Jonathan Demme Tribute Film

When luckless dreamer Melvin Dummar (Paul Le Mat) rescues a grizzled, half-dead man (Jason Robards) from the desert, he’s skeptical of the man’s claim that he’s actually reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes. But in the wake of Hughes’ death a decade later, a will appears naming Melvin the recipient of $156 million, and a media circus ensues. Accused of forgery, Melvin vigorously maintains his innocence despite a strong intuition that he’ll never see any of the money.

USA, 1980, 95 minutes, Rated R, Directed by Jonathan Demme
