Quite uninteresting screen play, rather forced gags. Hard to believe that this was all that popular back in 1964, but it certainly does not age well for 2017. In truth, I only could watch the first 15 minutes, maybe it greatly improves at some point later. A fair price for this would be $0.99 for a rental, but even then you would regret the time wasted.

I remember watching this movie for the first time when l was about ten years old and again several times as an adult and have always enjoyed it. I couldnt wait to visit Topkapi on a visit to Istanbul in 1995. It did not disappoint. Sandy Patterson

A delightful entertaining way to spend 2 hours. Great character development. Filmed at a time when movies did not spend hours trying to see which director could out shock one another. The kind of movie you tell friends about and then go see it a second time with them.
