Semyon Gorbunkov goes on a cruise. In Istanbul, he slips and breaks his arm. What he didn't know is that this was a signal for a gang of smugglers (a real smuggler - Gena - was also on board the same ship). So his arm gets bandaged with gold and diamonds. After he returns home, the gangsters are trying to get their stuff back, while the police try to catch them using Gorbunkov and his arm. Written by

The well-known quote of the film, "I won't be surprised if we are to find out your husband is secretly seeing a mistress," was originally, "I won't be surprised if we are to find out your husband is secretly going to synagogue." However, the Communist Party Committee of Ideology banned the phrase, because they felt it was "too anti-Semitic for the USSR". The phrase was re-dubbed, however, the original meaning can be easily spotted by looking at actors lips. See more
