In Monte Carlo, Theo Wilkins recruits his young protégé Paul Mason - just released from prison - to help him rob the famous casino of $4 million. The plan is straightforward. On the night of the Governor's Ball, Theo will create a distraction in the casino by having one of the team collapse requiring urgent medical attention. During that time Paul and another member of the crew will get the money from the vault. When the ambulance arrives, the money will leave with the sick man. The plan is a good one but not everyone will survive the robbery and no one will get rich from it. Written by garykmcd

Robinson and Hathaway Make This Seem Better Than It is
27 May 2006 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

Edward G. Robinson plays a scientist whose career has been ruined by an unspecified crime. He has dreamed up the perfect heist. For it, he has asked Rod Steiger to be his partner.

Also involved are Alexander Scourbey, Michael Dante -- always associated for me with his role in "The Naked Kiss," and many others. Joan Collins looks pretty much the same as she looks now, 45 years later.

It's pretty routine. However, the fondness and respect felt for Robinson by the others is interesting. Steiger particularly seems to hold him in awe.

It's far from great. But it's fairly good.
