The quintessential British caper film of the 1960s, the Italian Job is a flashy, fast romp that chases a team of career criminals throughout one of the biggest international gold heists in history.

Michael Caine is Charlie Croker, a stylish robber and skirt-chaser just out of British prison. Shunning rehabilitation for recidivism, Croker takes over "The Italian Job," a complicated plan to hijack gold bullion from Italy -- right from underneath the noses of the Italian Police and the Mafia.

The job, whose original mastermind was murdered, clearly requires the sponsorship of a richer, more established criminal than Croker. He turns to the auspices of the eccentric Mr. Bridger, a suave, regal, incarcerated English crime boss with a peculiar fascination with the Queen. Bridger provides Croker with a quirky group of Britain's most infamous computer hackers , bank robbers, hijackers, and getaway drivers -- the ex-con is soon well on his way to relieving Italy of the gold
