AllMusic Review by

A charming and entertaining soundtrack to a lightweight comedy from director Jules Dassin. Hadjidakis mixes Turkish themes with Greek bouzouki compositions and more traditional lush orchestral compositions, all to good effect. The main title music ("The Papace Museum") is a delight. Hadjidakis also scored Never on a Sunday, winning an Academy Award for the title song.
