Haskell (Sir Michael Caine) is assigned a job by his boss, the aristocratic Landon-Higgins (James Fox), to highjack a high-security van in broad daylight while it's in the shadow run (out of radio contact with the main security firm). He assembles a team to carry out the heist, but things don't go according to plan, and Haskell begins to think his boss might be double crossing him. Add to this, a teenage boarding school pupil has already witnessed some of the meetings of the team and Haskell's in real trouble.

In one scene where Haskell talks on his car phone, he is wearing sunglasses, a lavender shirt, and a purple tie. After a brief cutaway, he is wearing eyeglasses, a dark blue shirt, and an orange tie (and while he had the earpiece up to his ear in the earlier shot, he now seems to be talking to a speaker-phone). Later on (that same day), he has returned to wearing the lavender shirt and purple tie. See more
