At the prospect of expropriating a vast area for the construction of a military air base in the god-forsaken village of Ano Letinio, the worried father, Thanassis, delegates the well-informed member of the Greek Parliament, Karatzovas, so as to learn the Wing Commander's intentions. In the meantime, in the background of a fervent clandestine affair between Thanassis' betrothed daughter, Dimitroula, and the poor airman, Vagelis, the latter's friend and delightful porter, Kanelos, heads to the rural hamlet to lend a helping hand. However, looks can only get you so far--and as the well-intentioned doorman enjoys a far-fetched resemblance to the Hellenic Air Force officer--the true Wing-Commander's imminent arrival threatens to put a premature end to everyone's plans. Can the kind-hearted impersonator save the day? Written by Nick Riganas

Really Good..

Kanelos is a porter in an A 'class hotel, where often there are prominent faces. One day there is a well-known master Mr Karatsoglas. Meanwhile, Barba Thanassis and the president of a village in the constituency of the deputy, are rushing to meet him to ask for his help. But when they come to the hotel, Cinelos makes fun of the fossils and convinces the chief of staff. O kos Pterarhos is another very good greek comedy from the late 60's and although it's not as good as Baxalogatos is still a fun and pretty damn hilarious greek comedy. (10/10)
