Fairbanks Will

"The late Douglas Fairbanks senior, famed among his friends as a practical joker, couldn't resist keeping up his reputation even afterhis death. Four of his best friends, who had been given to understand that they would be remembered by him in his will were surprised when that document made no mention of them. However, an envelope not to be opened until 60 days later was placed in the custody of Douglas Fairbanks junior and when the friends had long given up any thought of an inheritance Douglas had his joke. The envelope contained a supplementary will leaving them $60,000 apiece."
