Peter Ustinov plays a character unlike any of his later roles. He is great in this movie.
A great ensemble cast, with some of the best character actors of the day, including Harry (Col. Potter) Morgan, Richard (Mel Cooley) Deacon, Charles (Homer Bedloe) Lang, and Dick (Mr Whipple) Wilson. My favorite in the film is Wilfrid Hyde-White, the distinguished British actor who plays an expat advisor to the King.
