Topkapi (1964) - Peter Ustinov DVD
Region code 1 (USA)
A "skillful blend of romance and comedy" (The Hollywood Reporter), Topgapi shimmers with hilarity, action and great performances! Fun-filled and suspenseful, it's "an incredibly ingenious affair [and] a considerable pleasure to watch" (Newsweek)!
Trouble brews beneath the exotically curved towers of Istanbul when the equally exotic - and equally curved - Elizabeth Lipp (Melina Mercouri) recruits her former lover (Maximilian Schell) in a scheme to heist the pride of the city's Topkapi museum: a jewel-encrusted dagger. But the "job" soon turns into a high-tension, high-wire performance - literally - when the bumbling fall guy (Peter Ustinov) and other amateurs they've hired as help find they'll have to lift their prize while dangling from the museum's vaulted ceiling!
Peter Ustinov, Melina Mercouri, Maximilian Schell, Robert Morley
