The Italian Job
1969
 
In director Peter Collinson's Golden Globe-nominated caper flick, enterprising swindler Charlie Croker (Michael Caine) hatches an ingenious plan to steal a huge cache of Chinese gold en route to Turin, Italy, as collateral for a new Fiat plant. The diversion for the heist: A gigantic traffic jam during an Italy-Great Britain soccer match. Incarcerated criminal genius Mr. Bridger (Noel Coward) helps Croker get financing -- from his jail cell.

The Italian Job remake was much better than this. The set up was great, reminiscent of the old Bond films - but after that it got corny. The chase sequence was rather ludicrous, and the ending was just silly.
