Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.

Melina Mercouri and lover Maximilian Schell, backed by a hand-picked team, find their carefully laid plans to heist emeralds from the Topkapi museum in Istanbul laid low by the bumblings of hanger-on Peter Ustinov - in an Oscar-winning performance (Supporting Actor) - then decide to go ahead anyway. Pioneer of the heist genre Dassin keeps tongue firmly in cheek but the suspense taut in this adaptation from intrigue titan Eric Ambler. The high-tech heist has been appropriated by everything from MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE to WALLACE & GROMIT! "As playful and lighthearted as Dassin's RIFIFI is stark and somber, TOPKAPI demonstrates that the director could make a heist picture in any manner he chose."– Time Out New York; "Remains unsurpassed for breathless suspense in its depiction of the jewel heist to end all jewel heists." – Terrence McNally, The New York Times

When Gomez (Raul Julia) and Morticia (Anjelica Huston) welcome a new baby into the family, evil nanny Joan Cusack invades the household and sets her cap for Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd). Paul Rudnick's wickedly satirical script, which includes the brilliant conceit of sending the Addams kids off to summer camp, makes this the rare sequel that improves upon the original.
