I remember Theodore Bikel best as the megalomaniac captain of the Russian submarine in "The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming". Allan Arkin plays his harried second-in-command and they both make what would have been a silly comedy a memorable story."Lieutenant Rozanov: Tovarich Capitan... The Russian Captain: Comrade Lieutenant Rozanov, immediately deliver all the shore party aboard. Lieutenant Rozanov: They're not here! The Russian Captain: Rozanov, the Americans are lying to you. Don't belive them. They are holding my sailors prisoners. Lieutenant Rozanov: Tovarish Capitan... The Russian Captain: Comrade Lieutenant Rozanov, I'm giving an order to deliver all my men aboard. Otherwise, I will straighten out this island in such a manner that nobody will be able to find it! I will explode it, do you here me? I will obliterate it from the face of the Earth! I'm giving you three minutes!"Bob, you should see this movie, if you haven't.
I haven't seen it, but I'm obviously going to have to!
