Quirky but worth watching05 July 2015

Entertaining storyline even if it is somewhat predictable, with some terrific stunts - Mission Impossible borrowed the human fly idea straight out of this movie. Some of the acting was average but reasonably good performances by an all-star (for 1964 at least) cast. You won't be disappointed.

Can't imagine27 January 2010

Just don't know why this movie won an Oscar. It's never been one of my favorites, probably because I don't like Peter Ustinov, though a veteran actor of high standing.
