Really only boasts that 1972 charm, but takes a long time to accomplish anything, offering a few, slim action scenes. I claim to love 1970s cinema, yet today's action movies have spoiled me.

Heist film. Kirk Douglas stars as a man in Germany who can't avoid a million dollars. See the film at the 37 minute mark for a good to great car chase. Music composer Ennio Morricone of Good Bad the Ugly fame provides the music soundtrack.

SEE that car chase here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=nyMWZpq76ig The Master Touch (Italian: Un uomo da rispettare) is a 1972 Italian / West German crime film directed by Michele Lupo starring Kirk Douglas and Florinda Bolkan. The film is also known as A Man to Respect in the Philippines and the USA. [img]http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/l8etImHT4-k/hqdefault.jpg[/img] Kirk Douglas as the master thief REVIEWS: 1 The film itself is fairly entertaining, if not for the antiquated technologies regarded as cutting edge, and Douglas' sharp suits. Features some fairly hairy car-chases esp. considering the lack of special effects but long (and decidedly cheesy) romantic interludes with Anna. 2 Very cool underated movie.
