Michael Caine stars as a cat-burglar in this 1960s suspense drama directed by Bryan Forbes. When jewel thieves Richard and Fe Moreau (Eric Portman and Giovanna Ralli) invite former alcoholic cat-burglar Henry Clarke (Caine) to join their ranks for a daring robbery, things quickly become complicated. Finding himself increasingly attracted to Fe, Henry soon realises that the couple's relationship is far from what it seems, a fact that has a bearing on events when the trio decide to relieve Spanish playboy Salinas (David Buck) of his jewels.

Just scrapes three stars because of Michael Caine
A shame. This had the makings of a great film. Good locations, Caine as a cat burglar but the film's biggest let down is its length. Far too talky. 90 minutes instead of 115 or 25 minutes more action and it would have been an easy four stars. Like 'Bullitt' has its car chase this has Caine breaking into a seemingly impregnable villa.
