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.

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

Ruined for me by Peter Capell and sleepiness. Those looking for Mansfield will be happier to find Vickers (most famous as the wilder sister in The (1st) Big Sleep).

I loved Jane Mansfield, but she has to be one of the worst actresses ever

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.
