A Million to Burn is a silent comedy released by Universal Pictures in 1923, and directed by William Parke.

Thomas Gwynne graduates from college and goes to work in a resort hotel as a waiter, but through different twists is soon made the hotel’s manager.  He has a vision of the hotel being a near-perfect environment and encourages the staff and guests to act on their impulses.  Things do not go well, and the hotel is failing.

Luckily Gwynne inherits a million dollars and buys the hotel, once again taking a philosophical approach to running it with, again, unsuccessful results.

Disputes between Gwynne and the staff complicate the situation, but soon playing hardball wins Gwynne the success he wanted.
