This is a very cool, very hip caper film, with sexy James Coburn in the title role. He plays a rogue and conman who no spoilers, here, It set in Tangier and throughout the Mediterranean, has gorgeous photography, has more twists and turns than any film I can think of, and an ending that is perfect and hilarious and brilliant. It's one of those who is conning who films, and this is one of the very best. It's perfectly cast, James Coburn is awesome, as is James Mason, James Fox, James Alderton, and Susannah York. And the soundtrack is very intense jazz, and Lou Rawls sings the opening song.
This is a great film.
