" If A Crime is Worth doing, it's worth doing right ", 20 October 2008
Author: thinker1691 from USA

Throughout the world, men with money and those without have created a game which for all practical purposes will never end. Those with wealth seek to design a box which will keep their valuables safe. Those without money then seek to break the box of riches even if it's against the law or if it's dangerous. Hopefully the 'box-makers' will eventually come up with a fool-proof design which will keep the thieves out. That is the premise of the film called " Grand Slam." Edward G. Robinson is Prof. James Anders a mild mannered school teacher who after years of research has discovered the 'perfect crime.' for stealing valuable diamonds worth millions. Secure that he has a fool proof scheme, he visits an old mafia friend, Adolfo Celi is Mark Milford and asks for a special team of professionals. The men chosen include Robert Hoffmann who plays Jean-Paul Audry a world re-known playboy and suave lady-killer who will meet his match in a cold, dispassionate secretary (Janet Leigh) with a secret. Klaus Kinski is Erich Weiss a military man who does not quit a job until it's conquered. Riccardo Cucciolla is Agostino Rossi and George Rigaud is Gregg, professionals in their own right. Together they accept the challenge of what is a deemed an unbreakable, thief proof safe. called the " Grand Slam 70 " series. A film which has become a favorite of many E.G. Robinson fans. ****
