Overview

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 Noël Coward in his last film role, 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 including a lascivious Benny Hill, bank robbers, hijackers, and getaway drivers -- the ex-con is soon well on his way to relieving Italy of the gold. ~ Aubry Anne D'Arminio

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The Italian Job is a quick, fun celebration of British ingenuity and wit. Its style is fast, gaudy, and hilarious; its players are clever, flippant, and rakish. Michael Caine's Croker is handsome, natty, and has a mischievous penchant for orgies, plotting, and international escapades. Caine gives Croker a cocksure panache that is skillfully matched by Noël Coward's command as the odd Mr. Bridger. Their scheme to steal gold bullion while distracting the police with a traffic jam proves excellent fodder for antics and car chases, allowing the film to end in the patriotic flair of the British flag as red, white, and blue Mini-coopers race through Italy, driving over buildings and waterfalls and into the Italian hillside. For this sequence, director Peter Collinson enlisted Quincy Jones and Beatles producer George Martin to create the pop anthem "Getta Bloomin' Move On" (more commonly known as "Self-preservation Society"), a tune that jokingly adds to the atmosphere of a "British Invasion." The Italian Job was a smash in Britain and abroad, and is remembered as an archetypal and influential British caper film; compare the last few frames of Guy Ritchie's modern hit Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels to the final moments of The Italian Job to find an homage to the earlier picture.

    BOTH WERE GREAT

    Both versions that I saw, (1969 and 2003), were hilarious. I was laughing so hard I started tearing. Even if u don't buy it, RENT it. This is a must see.

    'You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!'

    Love this movie! Love the actors/actresses. Love the story line. Adore the Minis! But that theme tune! It's brill! With or without the singing, I love it! Quincy Jones must be the best music composer in the world, to make up such a cheeky, smug and English tune! It fits perfectly with the Mini Coopers, that are a cheeky English car, that I love! So, come on and watch it ( if u haven't already ) coz 'It's Caper Time!'
