Little known actor, Jack Noah, is working on location in the country of Parador at the time the dictator dies. The dictator's right hand man, Roberto, makes Jack an offer he cannot refuse.. to play the dictator. Jack's acting skills fool the masses but not close friends and employees of the dictator.Written by
When Ralph (Jonathan Winters) meets Simms/Jack (Richard Dreyfuss) after the TV speech recording, he asks to use the president's bathroom. Simms gives him the direction "one left, one right, two more left". But as Ralph exits the door, he turns right instead of left. See more »
Funny, amusing, Dreyfus and Julia are wonderful together.
This is one the few movies I can watch over and over. If you've never seen it, give it a shot. Richard Dreyfus and Raoul Julia are wonderful together and although the movie amuses me greatly, it reminds me of Julia's untimely demise. It is a good opportunity to sit back and laugh at the international intrigue that is too much with us in these time of terror and fear.
