Did You Know?

Goofs

In the first 20 minutes of the film, while Peter Falk is talking to the antique shop girl in the doorway of her shop, his head is tilted to the left when the camera is facing him. With the camera behind him, his head is suddenly straight up or slightly tilted to his right. This happens twice as he is talking to her. It's minor, but very discernible. See more »

This movie probably passed by the box office like a cocaine bag in the bronx. But it wasn´t that bad. What´s more: it was amusing to watch how Peter Falk and his partner steal a jewerly dressed as an old man. The acting was nothing out of this world, and the plot was just about fine. But the music theme was really sticky, I can still hear that anoying but entertaining tone. If you see this on T.V. it´s ok, but I wouldn´t rent it at a price higher than 2 dollars.
