Movie Info

Ideals and reality clash in this humorous tale of the heist that could have been. As scheming career cat burglar Harry Dean (Michael Caine) prepares to steal a priceless statue from the world's richest man, he seeks out the assistance of Eurasian showgirl Nicole Chang (Shirley MacLaine). Though the likable rogue's plan seems foolproof as he conveys the details to his partner, Ram (Roger C. Carmel), the execution proves to be a detailed study in Murphy's Law. Constantly reinventing the plan as

Uma sacada genial no primeiro ato que eleva todo o restante do filme por contraste, além de trazer o trio principal afiadíssimo.

Fun, albeit dated, caper movie with well matched MacLaine and Caine.

March 14, 2009

Shirley MacLaine is miscast, but Michael Caine in a banner year that also saw him play the Oscar-nominated Alfie, gives a shrewd and suave performance in Roland Neame's heist picture.

Audience Reviews for Gambit

A great little 1960s crime-caper that is criminally overlooked. The structure of the film is very clever and still stands up today (as proven in the recent remake that is also criminally overlooked). Shirley MacLaine and Michael Caine are great together and Herbert Lom is brilliant as the anti-stereotype bad guy (of sorts). That's part of it's charm, I say Herbert Lom plays the bad guy but he doesn't, if anything he's the good guy. The film turns the crime-caper on its head and brilliantly so. Ronald Neame was a great director, from the serious masterpiece (The Man who never was) to the comedy crime caper (Gambit), to the Blockbuster disaster film (The Poseidon Adventure) to the classic adaptation (Scrooge). The man did no wrong and deserves more credit.
