Romanoff and Juliet (1961)



Reviews and Comments

"The great advantage of history is that it is adaptable."

In this devilishly clever political comedy, Peter Ustinov (who also wrote the screenplay) is the President of the very small, made-up country of Concordia and finds himself in a position to cast the deciding vote for or against a proposed bill in United Nations. This causes sudden great interest in Concordia. There is an abundance of hysterical low-key humor; the screenplay and Ustinov's performance are evidence enough for his admirable talent.
