Discredited professor Edward G. Robinson organizes a seven-person criminal gang. Robinson plans to steal a fortune from the underground vaults of the Monte Carlo casino. Despite a few tense moments, the plot moves like clockwork. Alas, Robinson isn't around long enough to enjoy the fruits of his labors. As for the other criminals, they find that fencing their stolen booty is next to impossible. All they come away with is $3000--won legitimately at the gaming tables. Those not interested in the male contingent of Seven Thieves (Robinson, Rod Steiger, Eli Wallach et. al.) are advised to feast their eyes upon leading-lady Joan Collins, in her considerable prime. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Made during the heyday of the "heist" genre and pretty derivative - steals from Rififi, Topkapi and the orig. Italian Job but doesn't hold a candle to any of 'em. An okay premise and great cast are severely under-utilized... some "saxy" moments w/Joan Collins and Eli Wallach but Rod Steiger is like a hulking black hole, warping the timespace fabric of the movie and dragging everything down after him. How'd this scene-chomping hambone get to be such a reputable actor?!
I like this type of movie straight forward and totally understandable with outstanding acting
. was nice to see Robinson ending a career and coliins starting one.surprising ending added to a top rate movie.
