The movie takes place in 1881 where James Abraham Garfield was the president of the USA and Abdulhamid 2 was the Ottoman sultan. See more »
The dress that Suzan Van Dyke wears during her duet performance with Aziz, is actually a 1920s fashion dress, whereas the movie is set in 1881. But, this might have been done on purpose as the style of duet that they are performing is considered a specific stage performance in Turkey and female performers still wear similar clothing during that kind of performance.

Spending large amounts of money is not enough for a good movie. But in a country like Turkey where capital is really rare Cem Yilmaz was lucky. He is a great comedian, and has proved himself as a great entertainer. Thus it was not difficult for him to secure the investment for this big project. That's why we were filled with expectations more than the usual. At the end it was a big disappointment; the script was not strong. The story was weak and so were the jokes. I am sure the next movie of Cem Yilmaz will be full of lessons learned from this movie. We, the Turkish audience, are expecting the next big hit from him. Our expectations are justified when we think about his talent.
