" In the old days I could make the plane flip onto its back "
The original script was suppose to be one which involved Clint Eastwood and that would have teamed him up again with fellow actor Andrew Robinson. Instead the role of "Charley Varrick " went to noted thespian (Walter Matthau) playing a small time thief who planned to rob an obscure, out of the way bank without any problem. With Harman Sullivan (Andrew Robinson) and Nadine (Jacqueline Scott) as partners this proves straight forward until they realize the small haul turned out to be more lucrative than expected. The extra money convinces Varrick the bank's additional funds was actually the Mob's money and they will want it back. That is where their hit man and mob enforcer whom they call Molly (Joe Don Baker) comes in. He is not so particular on how he recovers the loot, and that makes Varrick scared and nervous. With Don Siegel directing, this is one movie will provide physical confrontations, dramatic action scenes, destructive mayhem and explosive surprises. A very good film crew which includes Norman Fell, Sheree North, Benson Fong and William Schallert as Sheriff Bill. All in all a great recipe for a Classic movie. ****
