Trivia

The most important set was located in the Kunsthalle, the popular art museum, situated in the heart of Hamburg. The museum's directors agreed to close a portion of the museum which was an ideal place to build a bank set director Richard Brooks required for a four week period. The construction and filming had to be accomplished without interrupting the flow of visitors to the art and sculpture displays, and was accomplished when a portion of the hall was partitioned and closed off from the main entrance. Under the careful guardianship of art director and scenic designer Guy Sheppard, a "bank" was built so real in appearance, that employees of the Dresdner Bank and the American Express Bank across the street delighted in visiting it, and talking about it. In addition to the set, the Kunsthalle Museum furnished offices for the company, as well as dressing rooms, wardrobe quarters, film storage, and a special editing room, where Brooks could view the company's day-to-day efforts on a screen larger than the usual movie.

Crazy Credits

The title (that is, the original title "$") appears only in the form of a giant character, as would be used in a sign, being transported by a crane while the other opening credits are displayed in the usual way. See more »

European heist film that's Fun!
10 July 2004 | by shepardjessicaSee all my reviews

An entertaining Beatty/Goldie Hawn flick that really has nothing to say, but moves along like a freight-train and keeps your interest. Goldie Hawn was never cuter (except Shampoo w/Beatty) before she turned into Shirley MacLaine. Gert Frobe (Goldfinger) is befuddled and amusing. Beatty would make a great film the same year (McCabe & Mrs. Miller).

Don't expect much and you'll have a ball. Throw in Scott Brady (Lawrence Tierney's little brother) and other evil Germans and robbery becomes cool. I believe Richard Brooks directed this (In Cold Blood). He must have needed some fast cash. 6 out of 10. Best performance = Goldie Hawn.
