That was before my time, and I have not seen the movie either. However, $1M back then was worth $7.52M now.
Hey, that $7.5M is reasonably close to the $8.3M reported in another thread as the minimum net worth of the top 1%. I propose that if this movie is remade, it shall be entitled "How to marry a 1% dude".
