A Hamburg, West Germany bank has privacy laws that are quite favorable to an entire rogue’s gallery of criminals who need a place to keep their money safe from the government. Meanwhile, bank security consultant Joe Collins (Beatty) has been planning on stealing all of their cash along with sex worker Dawn Divine (Goldie Hawn).
From there, the criminals — like Las Vegas mobsters, military men who’ve just made money off an illicit drug deal and a brutal killer known only as the Candy Man — start hunting Joe and Dawn for their money across nearly all of Europe.
This was directed and written by Richard Brooks, who also wrote Key Largo and directed and wrote Blackboard Jungle, In Cold Blood and Waiting for Mr. Goodbar. This isn’t as successful as those, but Beatty and Hawn have a fun chemistry and are both filled with such charm that I couldn’t dislike this movie.
