HARRY AND WALTER GO TO NEW YORK
1976, Sony Repertory, 115 min, USA, Dir: Mark Rydell

“All the Digby-Hill-Chestnut gang needs is two breaks… out of jail… into a safe.” Second-rate entertainers James Caan and Elliott Gould try their hand at another line of work - bank robbing - when their vaudeville careers stall. Michael Caine, Diane Keaton and Charles Durning costar in this delightful comic crime caper in the tradition of THE STING. While the film’s budget almost crashed Columbia studios during production, the artistic and financial attention to details of the 19th-century period design pays off in this wildly fun crime comedy.
