One more splendid heist
9 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

At this time, keep in mind that the technology was not as it is now. In this episode, you find some tricks that will emerge in MISSION IMPOSSIBLE series too, and many other TV and big screen stories, heist ones of course. Such as the now famous video tape recording system, consisting in recording an empty room just before intruding in it to steal something. A classical. I felt great pleasure to Watch it in this 1968 episode. A good suspense topic with Simon Oakland as the villain. A pretty good time waster indeed. I am in a hurry to see the other episodes of this series that spot my childhood. Again directed by Don Weiss.
