There's nothing terribly original here even in 1969 but there are a couple of nicely executed cartoonish touches, including a nice animated sequence (who'd have thought master criminals had teams of animators in their gangs?), and an enjoyably destructive bit of business with a pet leopard and a giant fishtank en route to the robbery and a Statue of Liberty finale. Belmondo gets to perform a few stunts, Niven gets to display his effortless charming scoundrel routine and, thankfully, director Gerard Oury keeps it all from going too far over the top even if it does drag a bit in places.Read more ›
The robbery plot is very similar to the real Great Bank Robbery, which was very recent, and suffered a similar farcical flaw - the retired train engineer the robbers relied on drove mainly yard engines and proved unable to drive a main line engine.
Since much of the movie is slapstick and situational, the subtitles do not get in the way.
