When the German doctor examines Colonel Kastorp, he says he has been dead about an hour. When the Italians pick him up to take him away, rigor mortis has set in. Rigor mortis doesn't occur until up to 3 or 4 hours after death. It is unlikely that this amount of time occurred between the Colonel's death and the Italians taking him away. See more »

Maybe this is not the Great American Movie, but certainly a worthy effort. It has been over 30 (maybe 40) years since I've seen it (and not for lack of trying to find it on TV or for rent) but I can still remember how hard I laughed at Harry Morgan's antics. That's funny stuff! Worth a watch and I do wish it was available on DVD. At that time I first saw this I had no idea who Blake Edwards was, but looking back I can see the influence and similarities with works like the Pink Panther series. If you liked the Pink Panther and the Return of the Pink Panther (the only two I really cared for) you probably will like this too.
