This hilarious heist comedy stars the smoky-voiced Melina Mercouri and the dastardly Maximilian Schell as criminal masterminds planning to steal a jewelled dagger from an Istanbul museum. But it was Peter Ustinov who won an Oscar for his performance as the shambling amateur caught up in their web of intrigue. The film is also a bit of a 1960s time capsule, from Mercouri's false eyelashes to the groovy psychedelic lighting.
Classic London-set film noir about a small-time US crook on the fringes of the capital's seedily glamorous nightclub world.
