This is a MUST SEE film. If you like Bogie, you'll love seeing him in this film, which is different from anything else he ever did. He is playing comedy, but so deadpan. He, Peter Ustinov and Aldo Ray are perfectly cast and all are at the top of their game here. Basil Rathbone is terrific too. The dialog is the big standout. The author knows how to make you laugh about the most morbid things. I have to watch it every Christmas at least, but I find myself going back to it throughout the rest of the year as well. A real treat!
