Despite the police's preemptive strike, the illegal coast-to-coast car race is still on with new drivers. It's a race where fair play, red lights, stop signs, police roadblocks and traffic rules in general have no validity.

Most definitely "Thieves of Fortune" is not a good movie. It is more a curiosity than anything else, including the odd mix of a woman masquerading as a man with fake looking beard and mustache, but speaking in her natural feminine voice. I mean a Chimpanzee could figure out that he was a woman in the first 30 seconds, yet everyone in "Thieves" is totally clueless. Lee Van Cleef only appears in the beginning 10 minutes or so, suffering a heart attack to get him out of the picture, collect a check,and be featured on the cover art. Ironically, not long after this was filmed, a real heart attack took his life. Best quote comes from the man/woman when asked about her name "Peter". "What kind of name for a girl is Peter? What kind of name is Peter for a penis?" Forget the plot, because it makes little sense and is further troubled by atrocious editing. I found the ultra strange psychedelic ending, complete with ample nudity, totally acceptable for a movie this weird. - MERK
