In Madrid, actor Lang is hired by Monsieur Bernard to impersonate a certain Owen for a time. Lang is trained for his role, that is to replace Owen as the diamond pickup controller at General Diamond in London.
A diverting bit of fluff. Not as good as a similar movie made the previous year, "Who's Minding the Mint?" I saw a dubbed version of this movie, and that also detracted from the movie. The addition of Lionel Stander made this movie worth watching. A group of convicts breaks out of prison to print their own money while everyone in the country is engrossed in the big soccer match, hoping to get back in their cells before the game ends. Stander, however, only wants to break out of prison and get away. A good plot, a few lags (unlike in "Who's Minding the Mint?"), and familiar faces like Aldolfo Celli and Terry-Thomas thrown in in small bit-parts. Hardly a classic.
