I recently watched SEVEN THIEVES a very good 1960 heist film directed by Henry Hathaway and starring Edgar G Robinson, Rod Steiger (in a nicely subdued performance), Joan Collins (who never looked better and held her own with the acting heavy weights), Eli as her saxophone playing beatnik "boy friend," and Michael Dante (very nice man...have met him several times). The heist takes place in Monte Carlo and involves several different twists and plot turns turns that make this a very enjoyable flick...all and all a very pleasant diversion made all the better by the great group of actors mentioned above and supported by Barry Kroeger (Orson Welles' evil twin), Alexander Skourby and Sebastian Cabot. First and only time I had seen this movie previously, was around 35 years ago. My how time flies. It still holds up.
