I saw this movie last night at the Jacob Burns Theater in Pleasantville, NY and was told it is only the 2nd time it has been shown in the US. It certainly deserves a wider audience, but perhaps that explains the few entries I found on this site. My main reason for posting this is not so much to review the film as to ask other viewers whether they found film citation other than the ones to North By Northwest and Butch Casidy - both quite charming. I also found the use of the Mozart opera Abduction from the Seraglio to be clever, given the harem / bordello role in the film. So we have high brow and middle brow references in this film along with Austrian takes on Hollywood garage chase scenes - complete with a clever ending to the scene. Despite the buddy film aspects, this one cannot be mistaken for Hollywood, which adds to the suspense.
