One more caper movie

Every IMDb user who's read all my comments already know that I am the greatest caper movie lover in history.And this feature is really a little gem. I saw it many years ago, on french TV, when I was a kid.

An effective yarn about a bunch of thieves committing the perfect crime, stealing a $10 millions bullion from an aircraft. It reminds me a little : "The Italian Job", shot several years earlier. The Modus Operandi is almost the same. Almost, for the last part of the operation: with the bus.

I guess this TV movie was the pilot for a series. I guess but I am not really sure. It's not indicated in Maltin's dictionary. When I watched the police officers' bunch, with not really a lead one as we usually see in theâtres movies, it "smells" later TV episodes...

I highly recommend it. For those who love heist movies, of course...
