Gambit (1966)

Directed by
Ronald Neame

Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine star in Ronald Neame's heist caper. Harry is a cockney thief in Hong Kong, on the lookout for his next 'enriching' opportunity. Spying a beautiful nightclub entertainer, Nicole, who bears a startling resemblance to the late wife of the immensely rich Middle Eastern businessman Mr Shahbandar, he realises that here lies the key to his next scam. Unfortunately, although she's keen to get her hands on the genuine British passport that Harry promises her, Nicole is adamant that she won't do anything illegal for it. But that's not as big a problem as Harry embarking on his latest swindle without having thought through his plan, as is demonstrated by the ensuing series of comic misadventures. Neame's inventive plot twists are matched by the charismatic performances from the leads.
