The Lottery is a 1989 American short film starring Bette Midler and directed by Garry Marshall which was shown at the then Disney-MGM Studios in line for the first versions of the Studio Backlot Tour.
Bette Midler stars as a music teacher giving a singing lesson to a student in her apartment. She suddenly wins the lottery but quickly loses the ticket when it is swept out her window by a gust of wind and subsequently chases the ticket all over New York City.
It was the first film to be completely filmed at the Disney-MGM Studios theme park.
It was used to demonstrate general filmmaking, the use of exterior sets and soundstage sets, special effects and stunts.
