A former British colony in dire need of economic aid tries to play the British against the Soviets in an attempt to secure economic aid from either side in return for political loyalty.
The tune played by the marching band during the welcoming parade was used extensively in the classic BBC radio comedy, The Goon Show, which also starred Peter Sellers.
Señor Amphibulos - the prime minister:
No. No. You must drink in one. Otherwise you will get a bit - You know?
Cadogan de Vere Carlton-Browne: Delicious!
Señor Amphibulos - the prime minister: Yes. Yes. Is called "Gruzanios". Not a drop is drunk until it is three weeks old. And now we will have the musica!
When Amphibulos reaches for his glass to propose the toast it is almost full. When he raises it in the next cut it is nearly empty.
