The Italian Job

The Italian Job (1969)

Plot summary

(6 votes)

A bunch of men plan to pull off a daring heist in Italy to take a load of gold. However everything doesn't go to plan with the mafia breathing down their neck.

Factual error: While Bridger is watching the film of the Mafia boss following Beckerman he signals for the film to be stopped so he can look at the close up shot of the man. He is watching a 16mm film shown through a bog standard projector - stop a film like that for more than two seconds without closing down the projector shutter (this doesn't happen - if it did the screen would darken instantly) and it will melt and catch fire. This doesn't happen.

Charlie Croker: It's a very difficult job and the only way to get through it is we all work together as a team. And that means you do everything I say.
