The lobby card summary is wrong. It's actually _eight_ thieves who plot to steal the Russian Crown Jewels! One man and seven women (including rock group the Karlins as martial artist triplets). See more »
It's been a long time since I've seen this film, but I watched it a couple of times back in the eighties and thought it was quite funny. Marcello Mastrioanni plays an aristocratic playboy who's descended from the Romanovs. He thinks the Russian Crown Jewels are rightfully his, so when they arrive in London for a museum display he decides to steal them. He recruits a posse of beautiful girls to help him pull of the heist, including his current girl friend Rita Tusingham. "Diamonds for Breakfast" is fairly typical of the kind of light-hearted comedy-caper film popular in the late 60s and capitalizes on the whole Swinging London mystique with its playboy hero and its bevy of young lovelies. It doesn't have a lot of depth but it's fun.
