A Las Vegas casino blackjack dealer plots a complex plan to rob an armored car with $7 million in casino cash while it's en route to Los Angeles. He gets help from criminal associates of his late brother, who was killed in an unsuccessful robbery attempt, as well as his beautiful girlfriend, who is the personal secretary to the corrupt owner of the casino. However, an ambitions investigator for the U.S. Treasury Department is also tracking the armored car, suspecting that it's being used to launder unreported profits for organized crime. Written by
This picture was an international co-production of four countries: France, Italy, Spain and West Germany but not the USA even though it was shot there too and Americans Gary Lockwood, Lee J. Cobb and Jack Palance lead the cast. See more »
I saw this movie as a child and still remember it. It has one of those plots that's so interesting that you don't forget it. It reminds me of "Sudden Fury"(Canadian) and "Loophole" (UK). Wish they'd bring it out on DVD. I remember Elke Summer and Lee J. Cobb in it. Didn't recall Jack Palance at all. The movie is very believable and the plot and motives of the characters interesting. At one point it seems the whole thing has reached a stalemate and you didn't have a sense of what direction the plot is going to take which was right down my street. Hate those movies where you can guess how the plot will play out and it does just that. If you want a movie with an unpredictable and interesting plot this is it.
