A team of thiefes try to steal the TOPKAPI jewels.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Topkapi [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The superb Melina Mercouri stars in this first rate entairtainment, that her husband Jules Dassin produced and directed. She is playing the role of a passionate woman who's aim is to steal a diamond dagger in the TOPKAPI Museum in Instabul. Peter Ustinov puts the laughs, Maximilian Schell the romance, and Manos Hadjidakis the excellent exotic music of the titles. The scene where Akim Tamiroff gets lowered down from the ceiling of the museum via a system of ropes, may remind you the Mission Impossible movie. That's because TOPKAPI was the inspiration for the famous TV series Mission Impossible.
