Trivia

Gert Fröbe appears in this movie as a bank manager. His character and casting is designed to connect with his screen persona from the James Bond film Goldfinger (1964). As Auric Goldfinger in that movie, he was a villain who loved gold, had it as part of his personal artifacts and his scheme was to rob it from Fort Knox. In this movie, as Mr. Kessel, he is seen handling gold bars and his bank is the film's equivalent to Fort Knox. See more »

Goofs

Joe identifies the vault's door as being "eight inches of tempered steel", but the door is clearly a lot thicker than eight inches. See more »

Quotes

Dawn Divine: He could have killed me too, you know?
Joe Collins: That's right.
Dawn Divine: I hate him!
Joe Collins: Waste of time!
Dawn Divine: I don't care! I could kill him!
Joe Collins: Hey, stealing's a business, not a crusade.

Crazy Credits

Longest Chase Scene Ever?
7 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A two-hour bank heist flick with the final 20 minutes featuring one of the longest chase scenes I've ever seen on film. In fact, Warren Beatty and the two guys chasing him must have been Olympic marathon runners to keep up that pace for so long, racing through Hamburg, Germany.

This is a mixture of lighthearted and gritty material about an international robbery.

Joining Beatty ("Joe Collins") in the hijinks is a young Goldie Hawn ("Dawn Divine") and "Goldfinger" of James Bond fame, Gerte Frobe. Scott Brady and Robert Webber also give shorter-but- memorable performances. In all, entertaining but not real heavy in the brains department.

Nice to see this has finally been issued on DVD, and has a nice transfer.
