The typical heist gone wrong set-up is a helluva lot of fun with a young Jayne Mansfield and a buncha desperate characters after an emerald necklace, building to a nice climax in a funhouse.

Recommended.

An underrated and overlooked gem, The Burglar is a very stylized film for a B movie. Wendkos uses striking camera angles and far-out set pieces to frame what is essentially a psychological story about family loyalty. good noir from the second noir cycle

Jayne Mansfield plays a feature role in 1957's "The Burglar." The film has an interesting premise, but I thought the plot dragged at a few points. Let's just say It definitely has its share of slow moments. Not my favorite Mansfield film, but not a bad one either.
