Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1967. Vintage black-and-white reference still photograph from the 1967 release of the 1966 film. Cropping notations on the verso.

Scheming career cat burglar Harry Dean (Caine) prepares to steal a priceless statue from the world's richest man, with the assistance of Eurasian showgirl Nicole Chang (MacLaine). Harry's plan seems foolproof as he conveys the details to his partner, Ram (Carmel), details that proves to be a study in Murphy's Law. Constantly reinventing the plan as it spirals out of control, it seems as if Harry's heist is destined to fail.

Nominated for three Academy Awards.

Shot on location in California.

7.25 x 9.5 inches. Very Good plus, with toning, and a bruise on the verso from a mimeo snipe.
