Saw this one on television 30 years ago, so my memories of it are a bit hazy. As I recall, Walter Pigeon plays a blind academic who has spent decades studding the Vatican's art treasures - don't ask me how a blind man does this - and decides to reward himself with a retirement in the sun paid for by ripping off some of said treasures. He enlists Kinsky and Von Furstenburg to do the heavy lifting and there follows the usual split-second timing, hair-breadth escapes and double-crosses. I like this sort of picture, but I recall being oddly unengaged by this one. Nice Roman location shooting, but not enough for me to really recommend the film. A rainy afternoon time waster.
