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 price while dangling from the museum’s vaulted ceiling! A “skillful blend of romance and comedy” (The Hollywood Reporter), Topkari shimmers with hilarity, action and great performances. Fun-filled and suspenseful, it’s “an incredibly, it’s “an incredibly ingenious affair and a considerable pleasure to watch” (Newsweek)!
