The Twelve Chairs (1970) DVD9
Set in Russia in 1927. An impoverished former nobleman named Vorobyaninov, down on his luck since the Revolution took away his lands, servants, house, and money. But on his mother-in-law's deathbed he learns that she had sewn the family jewels into one of twelve dining room chairs. The trouble is, the chairs were long ago confiscated by the State, and before anyone can lay hands on them they are scattered all over the country.
The old woman has also shared the news in a final confession with the local priest, Father Fyodor. The two immediately set upon a competition to beat the other to the chairs.
Voribyaninov is hopeless, though he soon teams up with the dashing young Ostap Bender, a grifter who hears the older man's story and wants to get a piece of the action for himself.
