A charming caper film teaming Michael Caine with Shirley MacLaine as unlikely thieves in pursuit of a priceless sculpture. Caine plays Harry Deane – a refreshingly amateur crook with big ideas, but not quite the ability to carry them through.
Luckily he picks Nicole (MacLaine) as his accomplice, and it is her wit, wisdom and general know-how which saves him from jail. It all added up to an amusing, unusual and . . . well, thrilling . . . thriller.
