Question: What happened at the end? How did they get out of that fix?
The Italian Job (1969)
Directed by: Peter Collinson
Starring: Michael Caine, Benny Hill, Raf Vallone, Noel Coward
Revealing mistake: When the police car crashes through the grating that was dropped down in front of it at the end of the tunnel, the occupants are dummies - they just bounce about in the same upright position whilst the car drives into the river.
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.
Trivia: Croker has just come out of prison and is met by Lorna who has stolen a Daimler to drive him home in. Croker finds a flag in the car and says "this car belongs to the Pakistani ambassador" which was true, in real life that car did belong to the Pakistani embassy in London and was hired by the film company.

Answer: We may never know. The ending was originally a set-up for a sequel, but the sequel never materialized.
