Surprise Package Reviews:

In this quick talking, mostly comical movie- Yul Brynner plays an American gangster, Nico March and dressed appropriately for the part, that has been deported to the country of Greece. Along for the ride is his goody-two-shoes girlfriend Gabby Rogers, played by Mitzi Gaynor, and they are living the boring life of visitors on the coast of Greece.Nico meets a laundry load full of suspicious characters while cooling his heels and even meets the exiled Lord Pavel II played by Noel Coward. He comes up with a intelligent plan to steal the King's crown but there are just as many another criminals waiting to do the exact same thing.If you are reading this review without watching the film then you may trust that it is a great semi-mystery and cunning portrayal of the criminal mind. Perhaps it would have been a better film had the writers decided to go that way. Instead we have Brynner and Gaynor testing a comedy squad that was so ill-matched it took away from the whole story. When a person thinks of Yul Brynner- 'Comedy'- does not come to mind, nor does comedy come to mind in this presentation. First of all, some folks have a difficult time clearly understanding words that Brynner speaks. Actually throw in Brynner speaking like the quick talking Fed-Ex commercial man, and even the most noted linguist teacher would have a trouble with the dialog. Mitzi Gaynor added very tiny to the script by just testing the sweet unintelligent girlfriend and doing nothing that caused interest to the character. The only time that the viewer really takes notice of Gaynor is when she, along with Coward, is singing the game song 'Surprise Package' and that comes too late to support the movie. Not to take anything away from Yul Brynne but he appear a miscast for this kind of movie. Perhaps other actor should have helped with the interest of this film. But that is a moot point. But I will tell that the film did have some great 'one-liners'.


Charlton Heston in his memoirs told that when he was signing for his part in Touch of Evil it was mentioned that Orson Welles was going to be testing the sheriff, but that Universal still hadn't chosen a director. Well tells Heston, why don't you receive Orson Welles to direct. Duh, tells the studio heads, that's a splendid idea.On Surprise Pack with none another than Noel Coward in the cast, why didn't they receive him to take charge of the entire thing. It is nice to me that with all the talent in this project a better product didn't emerge. This is a caper movie involving a deported U.S. gangster played by Yul Brynner actually living on a Greek island trying to steal the crown of the exiled Lord of Anatolia played by Coward. Along for the ride is Mitzi Gaynor as Brynner's moll and the baddie played by George Coulouris from the People's Republic of Anatolia, the gang that overthrew the king. The director is Stanley Donen from a novel by humorist Art Buchwald.Brynner is terribly miscast in his part. A gangster I can trust him as, but he just has no flair for comedy. There were some comic moments in the Lord and I, but that's overall, a serious part. Coward looks bored by the entire thing, I want he had scripted and directed it also and he probably wished he did too. George Coulouris was his usual menacing self.Mitzi Gaynor was a fine musical talent who came along just when musical movies were ending. She was probably grateful for a number or two in this film. Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn wrote the game tune which she sings as well as Noel Coward. Can you imagine if he had contributed some musical number as well?The script has some topical references to the Cold War, the Appalachian underworld gathering, rigged quiz shows, etc. etc. that Yul and the cast comment on.It also would have been great since this takes zone in the Greek Islands to have splurged for some technicolor.If you see it, test to view it as a curiosity. Someone could have whispered in ears of the studio heads at Columbia the method Charlton Heston did at Universal.


This movie is a pleasant diversion and very funny. Brynner is passable as a Mafia gangster who is deported to a Greek Isle. Coward is a deposed lord who lives on told island and wants to sell a valuable crown he kept. Then there's a corrupt chief of police, a bumbling spy who explains when caught by Brynner ... "Of course, I am spying on you. That's my profession. I'm a spy!" There's also two government types from the deposed king's homeland & in the middle Ms. Gaynor. Now, I never heard of her and don't recall her acting, but she's the center of this film. She wins over all the different characters and devises some interesting solutions to Nico's constantly interrupting monetary problems. I'm really proud of myself for seeing it and being pleasantly entertained.This movie is reminiscent in it's topics and feel as an Argentinian movie of the same era "La Cigarra no es un bicho."
