Black comedy from stage director Prince, based on Harry Kressing's novel The Cook, fatally flawed by the casting of York as the mastermind behind various 'disappearances' and so forth as he schemes his way to ownership of Ornstein Castle. Shot on location in Bavaria, and full of downhill-going nobility with shrinking purses and growing pretensions. If you can take stray eyefuls of Sound of Music, you'll be rewarded by a beautiful performance from Angela Lansbury.
