Elliot Gould wears a modern (1979) style NY Yankees cap with a high, structured "buckram." During WWII a softer, lower skull-fitting cap, the so-called "Brooklyn-style" cap, would have been appropriate. See more »

This movie was blasted by the critics but who cares? It's not exactly a comedy, not a drama, but it does have a lot of action and adventure plus an all-star cast that all play wonderfully off one another, notably Elliott Gould and Stephanie Powers, who always have great comic timing anyway, but here they're a delight together, especially in the "stripping" scene on stage. It's got some good chases and gorgeous scenery of the island of Rhodes. Give it a whirl!
