A mild-mannered professor of ancient languages finds a mysterious coin that, once he translates its inscription, grants him the ability to slow down time, inflict pain, and kill. But when Russian spies learn about the coin, the stage is set for a hilarious chase as they pursue the prof in an effort to get their hands on the powerful artifact. Tom Poston, Julia Meade, Jim Backus, Margaret Dumont star in this quirky mix of comedy, action, and fantasy from director William Castle. 85 min.
