The plot of this eccentric comedy is based on a newspaper item, found by script co-writer Yakov Kostyukovsky, about the arrest on the Italian border of a criminal who had hidden “gold and diamonds” in the plaster cast. The movie became the absolute box-office leader of 1969. It was seen by 76.7 million viewers.The thrilling adventures of Semyon Semyonovich Gorbunkov, a modest economist, accompanied by a swindler named Count, have captivated several generations of moviegoers.

Here are some tips on using the menu on the DVDs:

First, you must wait for the required messages to play before you
can access the menu. In the main menu, there could be four topics:

  • простотр = Play
  • Эпизоды = Select episodes
  • Субтитры = Subtitles
  • Дополнительно = Extra material

Under subtitles:

  • Ангийский = English
  • Русский = Russian
  • без субтитров = without subtitles

My Review:
This movie is equivalent to a “G” rated American picture. It’s a Russian comedy. Notice that you can see either English or Russian subtitles. So, it is a fun way to improve your Russian. (You may need to experiment a little with the menu in order to display the subtitles, because the menu is in Russian. See tips below) The company ships promptly. Preview available. The DVD can also be rented
