COMMENTS It was the first of November 1955, when the Bournelli's Theatre opened its curtains for the premiere of the comedy by Alekos Sakellariou brought the title «My friend Lefterakis». A play presented by the Thiasos Dinos Iliopoulos and Mimi Fotopoulos, incorporated in the kind of theatrical farce. In reality it is an event following the French Boulevard (comedy intrigues, technical and misunderstandings), enriched with English humor. Eight years later than the theatrical presentation followed by a film version by Sakellarios with the logic of Finos Films who prefer walking for sure carrying the texts already proved on the theater stage. Kostas Voutsas, limited somewhat by its role Lefteraki and gives an unexpectedly moderate and highly significant interpretation.
