Check out the 1964 film “Topkapi”.  It’s Melina Mercouri at her most devious, Maximillian Schell at his open-shirted best, Robert Morley at his best, and Peter Ustinov the incomparable.  The basic plot in this film noir is an attempt to steal the Topkapi dagger – pictured above.  Based on a true story and filmed on location at the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul.  Well worth watching – it’s a treat.
