Great Movie Finally Made it To DVD
19 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has to be taken with a grain of salt - one can not compare this 60's movie with todays hot and speedy Action/Adventure films. Some viewers are doing just that with this film. Instead, this movie is full of excellent character actors such as Gert Froebe, Terry-Thomas, Bourvil and Dudley Moore, an interesting storyline and a very catchy soundtrack with a song from Jimmy Durante (which was only briefly available in 1968 on Paramount LP). This movie should be viewed in widescreen only to preserve the vista. I can seriously recommend this film to anyone who wishes to be entertained for a couple of hours by a great cast with an interesting story and a good soundtrack.
