Review by anonymous (posted on 29-Jan-2007)

I never laughed harder at any movie in my life. I saw this with an Army buddy while stationed at Ft. Sam Houston, Texas in 1966. The scenes with Harry Morgan getting progressively crazier as he tries to find his way out of the catacombs is side-splitting. A bit of Harry Morgan trivia I have noticed: He always seems to play a character whose last name begins with the letter "P". maybe it's a personal good luck thing with him. i.e., Major "Potts", Colonel Potter (on Mash), Pete Porter on "December Bride" of long ago black and white TV. Anyway, my buddy and I laughed all the way thru the film and until 3 or 4 in the morning back at the barracks which caused some minor problems with other GIs. Great film and a shame it's been almost forgotten.
