Gassman arrives in England, where he has inherited a fortune from an eccentric old aunt. When he visits her home and finds the place run down, he sells 13 antique chairs to raise money for the fare home. To his horror Gassman later finds a note explaining that the fortune was hidden inside

one of the chairs. He goes to gallery owner Tate, to whom he sold the chairs, and from this point it's a mad dash across Europe to find the missing loot. Eventually it's found in a chair that's owned by some nuns who are raising funds for an orphanage. Nothwithstanding a few good cameos,

particularly by Welles and De Sica, this film doesn't have much to offer. The old Russian fable the film is based on was done much better by Mel Brooks as THE TWELVE CHAIRS. This was Tate's last film; shortly after its completion, she and several others were the victims of the brutal bloodbath

inflicted by Charles Manson and his "family." Because of the notoriety of her death the film's original title, THIRTEEN, was changed to TWELVE PLUS ONE.
