Editorial Reviews

This Is Like No Robbery You’ve 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 world’s 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.

Customer Reviews

(Midnight Run Dave).It also has other great actors - Candice Bergen, James Mason.

It's a shame to think of how many good movies have been made, only to come to this: no showings on TV, no DVD, and just a few used VHS tapes on the secondary market.

Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
Update: Thankfully, a DVD has been released for this movie in the United States so it's finally part of my DVD collection.

I have long been a fan of this entertaining 1970s caper movie and so, even though I am a DVD devotee, I had no qualms about picking up a VHS copy. Though, a region-free DVD player comes in handy for movies like THE FOURTH PROTOCOL, HIGH ROAD TO CHINA, WHEN EIGHT BELLS TOLL and SILVER BEARS, I have yet to find a region where this movie is released.

However I do have a qualm. It appears that the quirky dry humor laden internal commentary by the lead Charles Grodin is missing from this VHS tape. This is an essential part of what makes this movie so engaging because although this movie is not filmed strictly as a comedy (except for the last 20 minutes or so), Grodins commentary kept the atmosphere light and carefree even in the moments of high-tension.

This movie also benefits from a truly amazing high-caliber cast. Featured alongside Grodin is Candice Bergen (later to find fame as Murphy Brown), James Mason, Trevor Howard and Sir John Gielgud. Given this cast and the clever humor and plot it really is astounding that this movie has yet to find a DVD release.

The movie centers around small-time diamond trader Howard R. Chesser who suddenly finds himself negotiating a million-pound deal (a lot more in 1974 than it sounds today). Treated with contempt by the Diamond Exchange located at 11 Harrowhouse (which carefully controls the flow of diamonds and stockpiles tons of them in order to maintain their value), Chesser jumps at the chance to snub his nose at the Exchange and particularly its snobbish Director Meecham (played by Gielgud).

I first saw this film on TV, in which the funniest thing was a retrospective voice-over commentary by Chesser (Charles Grodin's character) about the whole affair. The film is still good, but it was SO much better with the commentary. It seems like it has something missing now. I have put the tape I bought in a dusty cupboard and will watch the ancient taped TV version until the publishers think about releasing the better version.

Format: VHS Tape
This is a "new generation" spy caper, with Charles Grodin (who co-wrote the screenplay and narrates) as a Dustin Hoffman, Graduate-era slacker low-level diamond broker who falls into an elaborate plot to steal diamonds from a massive London diamond conglomerate led by John Gieglud. Grodin's partner-in-crime is a Carnaby Street, freewheeling "new age" woman played by Candice Bergen, in striking, mod clothes -- who drives race cars and service trucks equally and with great skill.

Filmed in England, with a decidedly "English" feel, this is a thoroughly enjoyable spy caper, with a smart sense of humor and stylish direction, set design, and music. In fact, the music -- also mod, Brit, and hip -- is one of the highlights. Add James Mason and the great Trevor Howard and you have an overlooked gem of a film, eagerly waiting a decent DVD re-release.

Fox, what are you waiting for?

Format: DVD
For as long as the dvd was available as a consumer product i have wanted this magnificent film, 11 Harrowhouse.I admit to buying a dvd transferred from a video and one from a laserdisc,so when the official dvd arrived i was hoping for the best.
The dvd released by Shout is superb.Excellent detail,colour rendition and very light grain.(The dnr has not smashed detail).Audio is clear and whilst not a 5.1,dts mix it is just fine.For the record the audio contains the voice over from Charles Grodin.Unbeknown to me there is a version without it.

It's a shame to think of how many good movies have been made, only to come to this: no showings on TV, no DVD, and just a few used VHS tapes on the secondary market. Such is the case for 11 Harrowhouse (AKA Anything for Love (USA) (TV title), Fast Fortune).

1974 May have come and gone, but this movie still makes for engaging entertainment. Fully 4 tons of diamonds are stolen from the leading firm in London, and the scenario is more than plausible. Bergen and Grodin offer solid performances, and the addition of John Gielgud (the Butler in Arthur) ensures a quality product.

At 8 PM, I pressed play expecting to stop at 9 for ABC's Desperate Housewives... It was 9:30 before I suddenly remembered to stop. Soon it became clear the intermission was unnecessary; this movie beats modern television hands down.

Well. Let me start out by saying that I first saw this film as a child and instantly fell in love with everything about it. I wanted to be the Charles Grodin character, I wanted the Dino Candace Bergen drove, I loved everything about the film. Because of that for years I've tried to find it on DVD without succss. I read about how the narrative track had been removed and that was a great disappointment because that is a key part of the film. So I was surprised and intrigued to see this DVD on the market. I bought it hoping that it had all of the elements of the original film because I wanted to share this gem with my spouse. I am so glad that I bought it. It is just as I remember it and now I can watch as much as I want. It's so great to be able to have this classic in our collection the way I remember it. It was fun then and it is fun now. I think anyone who saw the original will be pleased with this dvd....
