There is only one scene in the entire film where Yul Brynner is not seen smoking a cigar. The actor died of cancer some 25 years afterwards and attributed his illness to smoking; his last appearance was in an anti-smoking commercial. See more »

Gangster Brynner is exiled back to a Greek Island where he hatches a plan to steal the crown of the king of Anatolia played by Noel Coward.
Underrated comedy with a sparking script of witty one liners, delivered really well by Brynner. In support, Coward is well...Coward and there's a nice turn by Guy Deghy as a thief who helps Brynner. Best of all is Mitzi Gaynor, who plays Brynner's moll. Her performance is wonderful as is she, making this all in all a really quite charming film.
The only bum note the Coward / Gaynor title song duet - could have done without that.
