Goofs

At about 70 minutes into the movie, Goldie Hawn is called in a public phone booth in Hamburg by Warren Beatty. The film takes place around 1970. While a public phone booth could always have been called in the USA, in Germany it was not possible until 1983 when about 300 booth were retrofitted accordingly. See more »

Crazy Credits

Longest Chase Scene Ever?
7 May 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

A two-hour bank heist flick with the final 20 minutes featuring one of the longest chase scenes I've ever seen on film. In fact, Warren Beatty and the two guys chasing him must have been Olympic marathon runners to keep up that pace for so long, racing through Hamburg, Germany.

This is a mixture of lighthearted and gritty material about an international robbery.

Joining Beatty ("Joe Collins") in the hijinks is a young Goldie Hawn ("Dawn Divine") and "Goldfinger" of James Bond fame, Gerte Frobe. Scott Brady and Robert Webber also give shorter-but- memorable performances. In all, entertaining but not real heavy in the brains department.

Nice to see this has finally been issued on DVD, and has a nice transfer.
