AFS Presents: Melvin and Howard
Hard-working loser Melvin Dummar (played by the underrated Paul Le Mat) helps a disheveled old man (Jason Robards) he finds in the Nevada desert one night. After giving him a jolly ride back into the city, he is surprised at the end to find that he is the billionaire Howard Hughes. Years later, Hughes dies and names Dummar in his will. Full of loving satire and memorable characterizations, another cast member, Mary Steenburgen, would go on to win a well-deserved Oscar.
