The title 'Seven Thieves' sounds terrifically tempting for a heist movie. I had never heard of this movie until I saw it on the dusty shelves :) of the library. I grabbed it immediately. And noticed how rich the cast was: Two Oscar Honorary Award winners Edward G. Robinson and Eli Wallach, as well as big names such as Rod Steiger and sexy Joan Collins. So I didn't put it back to the shelf then :)
This 1960 production, which I have seen without expectations and without having heard of it before turned out to be a nice discovery for me. I really liked it. Not only it doesn't fail in any phase of the movie, but also it is catchy and nicely done. You get almost everything you look for in a heist movie and with a delicious flavor of nostalgia.
The movie nominated for Oscar for Costume Designer - Black & White category, lost to The Facts of Life.
