Madigan's Millions (It: Un dollaro per 7 vigliacchi, Sp: El Millón de Madigan) is a 1968 Italian-Spanish comedy crime film directed by Stanley Prager and produced by Sidney W. Pink.

The movie was shot in 1966 but was not released for two years. It stars Dustin Hoffman, in his first movie role, as Jason Fister, a young U.S. Treasury Dept. official sent to Rome to recover a large sum of money owed to the United States government by a deceased mobster.

The film is in the lowbrow comedy genre, with comic stop-action chase scenes, as well as many scenes involving spaghetti western-style gunplay on the streets of Rome. Hoffman's Fister is a seemingly naive and mild-mannered bureaucrat with a sense for sniffing out phonies.

The interiors of the film were shot largely in Spain, with exteriors in Rome.
