Absurdly, the film's title was changed on its initial British release to "How To Steal A Diamond In Four Uneasy Lessons", on the grounds that people might think it was a rock-music concert film like "Woodstock". This was much disparaged at the time by journalists and members of the public, and the film has reverted to its slicker original American title for all its British TV showings and for its video and DVD releases in the UK.

This movie is great. I don't know how I missed it. All of the actors work well together. It is one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time. Mr. Redford is a great comedian. Even though I missed it at the movies, thank goodness for satellite.
