The Diamond Arm

Synopsis: Semyon Gorbunkov goes on a cruise. In Istanbul, he slips and breaks his arm. What he didn't know is that this was a signal for a gang of smugglers (a real smuggler - Gena - was also on board the same ship). So his arm gets bandaged with gold and diamonds. After he returns home, the gangsters are trying to get their stuff back, while the police try to catch them using Gorbunkov and his arm.

We bring you a live broadcast

of Soviet tourists

Is there something you would like

to say to our dear listeners

The fur coat can wait.

Its more important to see the world.

He works day and night...

So youve never before...

Fish Street. Thats an important

street there. The Chikanuk pharmacy.

Lyolik, I remember it all.

Everything you do must look very

real. You fall down and swear...

Damned apple!

No...Damned melon!

Keep that in mind!

The injury...

Everything should be true to life.

As our chief says, The most important

thing in our business is realism.

Happy landings, tourist!

MIKHAIL SVETLOV:

Day Seven

of this fascinating cruise...

I love the song

about hares.

Senya, its not topical,

about hares!

Island of Bad Luck!

All covered with greenery,

Absolutely, stark,

Lies in our itinerary

An island of bad luck.

There live the savages,

Poor, wretched guys,

Faces bear ravages,

But kind under disguise.

Whatever theyre doing,

It never goes right.

They must be born to ruin

On a very black Friday night.

Crocodiles not caught,

Coconuts wont grow.

They weep and pray to God

For days and days in a row.

They are no idlers,

They could have had a ball.

They ought to cancel Fridays

Once and for all.

But, alas, no calendar

On the isle, theres not!

Every living islander

Just goes for a naught.

But, alas, no calendar

On damn isle, theres not!

Thats why poor savages,

From early morn till night,

Counting their damages,
