An entertaining caper movie with an all-star cast
27 July 2003 | by (Midcoast Maine, New England) – See all my reviews

An appealing caper movie with an all-star cast. Fred Astaire is mischievous as a longtime British Secret Service man perennially passed over for knighthood. Disappointed again, he masterminds a plan to steal gold bullion on an airplane. He cons ex-Ivy League professor Richard Crenna & Anne Heywood, jet set

ex-wife of Jacques Sernas to help him recruit a gang of thieves. With good guys Ralph Richardson & Roddy McDowall, bad guys Cesar Romero & Adolfo Celi.

Filmed in London and Italy. Delightful music by Elmer Bernstein with Anne

Heywood performing the title song. Directed by actor Alf Kjellin.
