The Italian Job (2-Jun-1969)

Director: Peter Collinson

Writer: Troy Kennedy-Martin

Music: Quincy Jones

Producer: Michael Deeley

Keywords: Crime/Comedy, Heist, Explosions

English thief Charlie Croker plans a 4 million gold heist on the streets of Turin, designing a traffic jam in order to facilitate their getaway to Switzerland. Spectacular car chase with the crew's three Mini Coopers. A quintessential role for Michael Caine, and certainly the role of a lifetime for those little automobiles. Remade as The Italian Job (2003), with some common elements but largely in name only.
