Seven Thieves ★★★ 1960

Charming performances and nice direction make this tale of the perfect crime especially watchable. Robinson, getting on in years, wants one last big heist. With the help of Collins and Steiger, he gets his chance. From the Max Catto novel “Lions at the Kill.” Surprisingly witty and lighthearted for this subject matter, and good still comes out ahead of evil. 102m/C VHS, DVD . Joan Collins, Edward G.
