This Is Like No Robbery Youve Ever Imagined
The Challenge: Steal $12 billion dollars in uncut diamonds.
The Task: Break into the most securely guarded fortress devised by man.
The Plan: Use amateurs armed with ingenuity, guts, a cockroach, a thin cord and a vacuum cleaner.
The Risk: Death.
With the help of a wealthy widow (Candice Bergen), an eccentric oil baron (Trevor Howard), an angry employee (James Mason), and, of course, a cockroach, a talented burglar (Charles Grodin) attempts a daring robbery of the worlds largest clearinghouse for gems.
Based on the novel by Gerald A. Browne and adapted by Charles Grodin, 11 Harrowhouse delivers precise wit and comedy through its talented ensemble cast, resulting in a wild-ride spoof on suspense thrillers.
