Editorial Reviews

Tom Selleck stars as Nick Lassiter - a suave, debonair, man-about-town and thief. Whether he's charming high society at dinner or emptying their safes in the dead of night, Lassiter excels at what he does. On the eve of WWII Lassiter finds himself in London, where local authorities are well aware of his history as a notorious cat burglar. When word leaks out that a cache of uncut diamonds is to be smuggled through the German embassy, Lassiter is coerced by police and the FBI to perform one last heist on their behalf.

This little known movie stars Tom Selleck as an American jewel cat thief in pre-World War II London. It's a great movie and has an incredible supporting cast including Bob Hoskins as a police officer doggedly on the title characters trail. Adding beauty to the movie is former Bond girl Jane Seymour as Selleck's girlfriend and the impossibly sexy Lauren Hutton as a Nazi.
With OTT Nazi's as the villains this movie truly is a great ride and a DVD release is long overdue.
There is a DVD available in Europe (Region 2) for those of us with region-free players.

This is a much overlooked crime thriller, with a delightful combination of charm and suspense. Selleck plays a succesful cat burglar in London just before the outbreak of WW11, coerced into helping a brutally determined British cop, brilliantly played by Bob Hoskins, into stealing a fortune of diamonds from the Nazis. The Nazis are suitably menacing, Hoskins roguishly deceitful, and the finale has a clever and unsuspected twist. All in all, one of the better crime thriller's I have seen.

Tom Selleck, Jane Seymour, and Bob Hoskins have great chemistry in this movie and the twists and turns keep you glued to the screen to see what will happen next. I hope the "powers that be" put this on DVD soon!!! Do you hear me??

At last, here is an excellent DVD transfer of a very underrated but excellent movie. I previously imported the Spanish DVD release, and the quality was poor. It looked like a VHS enhanced transfer.
HEN"S TOOTH video has released a very "handsome" DVD, with very professional packaging. The picture quality is extremely close to the theatrical prints I used to project as a part-time projectionist in college. The aspect ratio is nicely framed as an anamorphic 1.85:1. The soundtrack is very good, not excellent, and probably from a MONO source, but processed as 2-track stereo. There are no extras, other than English subtitles.
I hope the Blu-ray of this little gem of a movie is coming soon, because, I would buy it in that format again. I recommend this disc as the best available for this title.

I have seen this movie sometime back and always enjoyed watching it and it is not a movie that anyone under 13 should watch. All the characters are good in their prspective roles. and of course Tom S. rates high on my list of good actors. There is some comedy in it , but not much, but it still is an enjoyable movie.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
In this 1983 film, Nick Lassiter (Tom Selleck) is a super slick, always charming, cat burglar/second story man. The setting is England, June,1939, just before the German invasion in Europe. Lassiter has been framed by inspector Becker (Bob Hoskins) of the London police, in order to force him to steal 10 million in diamonds from a secret vault in the German Embassy. Jane Seymour is his beautiful but jealous girl friend. Mari (Lauren Hutton) is the alluring but deadly german countess charged with the safe keeping of the diamonds. Her faithful body guard, Max is even more deadly. There is some brief nudity which might offend the sensitive types, but I think it's tastefully done.

This is a fast paced action adventure movie. The outcome is predictable but will still keep you interested throughout. All the actors play interesting and believable roles. The memorable musical score adds to the 30's flavor of the film.

I did own a VHS copy but decided to buy the DVD when it came out, because I loved watching it so much. If you saw and liked "High Road to China", also starring Tom Selleck, I think you will like this one too.

I thoroughly enjoyed Tom Selleck as the charming and romantic cat burglar. Not only was the story interesting, but it had some kinky twists that added flavor. Also, the casting was excellent, all the characters were well selected. The setting in London gave the movie a very nice ambiance and the ending was a nice surprise. The total package was delightful.

LASSITER is a movie about a jewel thief in London during the years just before World War II. After an arrest he is pressured by British law enforcement and the FBI into attempting to steal a horde of gems from the German Embassy.
The film is a fairly entertaining romp but there are problems with the script and some of the actors seem to be miscast. The movie does have many excellent sets and Tom Selleck gives a strong performance as Lassiter. The supporting cast includes Jane Seymour, Laura Hutton and Bob Hoskins. Hoskins is particularly good in the role of Inspector John Becker.
