    A very quirky & fun film. Universal released a pressed DVD in the UK, I was looking for it the other week, but then remembered I'd lent it to someone. I'll certainly be buying this along with, The Thrill Of It All...& then there's the WAC releases for March (whatever they'll be), along with some other announcements, a very good start to the year.

    Always found this a fun film. I'm a big mystery buff anyway, so naturally I was intrigued with it from its initial release. The mystery isn't the greatest, but the disguised actors are a novelty (allegedly a couple of them aren't actually in the picture except for the reveals at the end. The heavy make-up disguised stand-ins doing the roles. It's obvious that's Mitchum and Douglas since the make-up doesn't disguise their very recognizable looks).

    Don't overlook that this is one of the first films where George C. Scott played a leading role.

    Oh, what great news! I've loved this film since.....well, quite possibly when it was released. I know I went to it as a kid, maybe a couple of times. And on home video I never got past the laserdisc which I still have here. Thank you, Universal!

    Having watched this many times it’s my opinion that the guest stars really were disguised in the film but some doubles were also used. They may have filmed some of them (like Sinatra) separately in Hollywood and just used a few close up shots that could’ve been done in a studio. Other shots in the same scene, on location, including the set or location, were done in England with a double dressed like Sinatra. He wasn’t about to go to London just to do a 2 minute scene but he could do a few lines in Hollywood that they would later intercut with the double. (And I’m pretty sure the few lines he did were dubbed because The Voice would’ve been a giveaway.)
