A Brilliant Film.
5 November 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This a brilliant film, a sophisticated comedy thriller in the 'North By Northwest' and 'To Catch A Thief' mould. I have always thought that Burt Reynolds was at his best in comedies, and his performance in this delightful film proves my point. David Niven adds his usual strong support in the role of the craft Chief Inspector Cyril Willis, (What a great name), and Lesley-Anne Down adds the required sophistication and glamour in necessary quantities. The supporting cast is excellent, especially Patrick Magee as the Nazi pilot. The script is extremely literate and funny, and the locations are glamorous and sophisticated. A great movie that I hope will come out on DVD. I musn't forget Nelson Riddle's brilliant score, orchestrating the work of Duke Ellington into a remarkable and hummable score. Can anybody please tell me if a soundtrack exists for this brilliant film? Also, who originally sang the song, 'Boogie, Let's Boogie'? Any help really will be appreciated. Thanks, Gaz.
