In spite of the low rating of this film I got interested in it as I wanted to see an early Hoffman's performance and the story sounded interesting.So I watched the film and I think it isn't bad at all.Yes,it has its weak points but there is plenty of humor and fun in it.Some scenes can really make you laugh.The mixture of comedy and crime works in my view and the reason for that is mainly the wonderful Hoffman ,who makes a very good role.There is even a car chase in the movie which isn't bad for a film made in the 1960s.The plot is interesting,maybe it isn't so well written but it won't bother you and you'll probably find the movie nice.The supporting cast is also good:Elsa Martinelli,Gustavo Rojo,Ricardo Carrone,Fernando Hilbeck and the others do their job well.
