In August 1978, fifteen unedited reels of the film were stolen at gunpoint from a Boston studio in a bizarre movie heist ironic to the film's heist plot. However, the stolen film was mostly outtakes and dailies that could be easily replaced. The positive prints of negatives of the film's footage were actually held by Technicolor in New York City. The robbers demanded a US $600,000 ransom. The money was never paid and the film completed without the missing footage and without any detrimental delays. When the robbers called to demand their ransom, director William Friedkin told them, "Get a projector and enjoy the film. It's all yours!". See more »

A neat little crime caper, and I wonder why we never see it on any of the cable networks. Falk was great, as were Peter Boyle and Warren Oates, and believe or not, Paul Sorvinio was in this one too! Realistic, and pretty honest.
