Storyline

When some priceless Macedonian treasures are swiped, lawyer Falk arrives to get to the bottom of things. He spends a good deal of time dodging more bad guys than in the average film, but that is because this is just two episodes of his "Trials of O'Brien" television show edited together and dumped quickly into the theaters. Plenty of dead bodies pile up along the way, with little excitement en route. Written by Edward Girard <the_movie_guru@yahoo.com>

Not enough story

A compilation of episodes from Peter Falk's long forgotten Lives of O'Brien TV series, Too Many Thieves has a good cast and little else to speak of. David Carradine is a robotic villain, Britt Ekland a beautiful maiden in distress, and Falk is lawyer O'Brien. The most interesting thing about Too Many Thieves is seeing Falk lay the groundwork for his wildly popular Columbo character. O'Brien wears a raincoat (albeit less rumpled than Columbo's) and speaks in the same peculiar circular way in order to ensnare the villain. A curiousity indeed, but of mild interest at best.
