A flashy, fast romp that chases a team of career criminals throughout one of the biggest international gold heists to ever appear on film. The unparalleled Michael Caine is arresting, leading a cast that truly embodies the Swinging ‘60s, including Britannia’s premier export Noël Coward (In Which We Serve) and the late, great Benny Hill (The Benny Hill Show).
Charlie Croker (Caine), a stylish thief fresh out of prison. He takes over “The Italian Job”, a complicated plan to steal gold bullion from Italy, right from underneath the noses of the Italian Police and the Mafia. Combining action, humour, and an incontrovertible sense of style, this is undoubtedly one of the quintessential British caper films of the 1960s.
