HARRY AND WALTER GO TO NEW YORK
1976, Sony Repertory, 115 min, USA, Dir: Mark Rydell

“All the Digby-Hill-Chestnut gang needs is two breaks… out of jail… into a safe.” Second-rate entertainers James Caan and Elliott Gould try their hand at another line of work - bank robbing - when their vaudeville careers stall. Michael Caine, Diane Keaton and Charles Durning costar in this delightful comic crime caper in the tradition of THE STING. While the film’s budget almost crashed Columbia studios during production, the artistic and financial attention to details of the 19th-century period design pays off in this wildly fun crime comedy.


DEADFALL
1968, 20th Century Fox, 120 min, UK, Dir: Bryan Forbes

Michael Caine is cat burglar Henry Clarke, who with accomplices the Moreaus (Giovanna Ralli and Eric Portman) plans and executes an elaborate diamond heist from the epic estate of millionaire Salinas (David Buck).


THE IPCRESS FILE
1965, Universal, 108 min, UK, Dir: Sidney J. Furie

Low-key, irresistibly sexy thief-turned-spy Harry Palmer (Michael Caine) is introduced to the hilariously inscrutable bureaucracy of the British Secret Service when he tries to find out who is behind a "brain drain" of top scientists. Features one of composer John Barry’s most weirdly beautiful scores.
