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

It appears that there was an error in Sarge's calculation of how much the Candy Man's heroin-filled baseballs were worth: if "one baseball is worth $19,000, and the Candy Man has prepared 24 of them", then $19,000 multiplied by 24 is only $456,000, not $470,000. Each baseball would have to be worth $19,583.33&1/3 for 24 balls to be worth $470,000. See more »

Sarge: [into the phone; cheerful tone] So anyway, I go to the hotel to get my baggage and it isn't here.

Sarge: Yeah, those stupid mothers never put it on the connecting plane to Munich. Now get this, my address book is inside the missing suitcase. So here we are with no way to contact my old friend Joe without knowing where he lives.

European heist film that's Fun!
10 July 2004 | by (sparks, nevada) – See all my reviews

An entertaining Beatty/Goldie Hawn flick that really has nothing to say, but moves along like a freight-train and keeps your interest. Goldie Hawn was never cuter (except Shampoo w/Beatty) before she turned into Shirley MacLaine. Gert Frobe (Goldfinger) is befuddled and amusing. Beatty would make a great film the same year (McCabe & Mrs. Miller).

Don't expect much and you'll have a ball. Throw in Scott Brady (Lawrence Tierney's little brother) and other evil Germans and robbery becomes cool. I believe Richard Brooks directed this (In Cold Blood). He must have needed some fast cash. 6 out of 10. Best performance = Goldie Hawn.
