Storyline

In Monte Carlo, Theo Wilkins (Edward G. Robinson) recruits his young protégé Paul Mason (Rod Steiger), just released from prison, to help him rob the famous casino of four million dollars. The plan is straightforward. On the night of the Governor's Ball, Theo will create a distraction in the casino by having one of the team collapse requiring urgent medical attention. During that time, Paul and another member of the crew will get the money from the vault. When the ambulance arrives, the money will leave with the sick man. The plan is a good one, but not everyone will survive the robbery, and no one will get rich from it. Written by garykmcd

Elegant caper movie completely fizzles out at the end
30 April 2019 | by gridoon2019See all my reviews

This elegant, classy and yet tense caper movie, set in the French Riviera, is an example of precise old-school Hollywood craftsmanship (the casino sets are very impressive) spiced up with elements of modernity (Joan Collins has two erotic dance numbers - she's an absolute knockout), but the ending is so laughably anticlimactic that it almost makes the entire thing a waste of time. **1/2 out of 4.
