The plaza where Webster and Dave have their final confrontation at the film's conclusion is the same used in Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972) for the battle between the ape forces and the human forces. See more »
In a world full of thieves, I wanted to be an honest one.

Ryan O'Neal gives one of his better, looser performances in this crime-caper, a handsome comedy-drama involving a high society thief planning a major heist. Warren Oates is the investigator in dogged pursuit, Jacqueline Bisset (at her most lovely) plays a love-interest in on the action, Austin Pendleton is very funny as a nerdy chess pro, and wonderfully blithe Jill Clayburgh makes a big impression in the minor role of O'Neal's ex-wife. Engaging fluff with tongue wryly in cheek, well-directed by Bud Yorkin. Terrific non-think entertainment for cable-watchers, yet this did seem a little flat when it played in theaters. **1/2 from ****
