Based on fact, this adap­ta­tion by Michael Crich­ton of his own novel tells the story of the first recorded theft from a mov­ing train. Vic­to­rian gentle­man crim­i­nals Sean Con­nery and Don­ald Suther­land, with Con­nery’s mis­tress Les­ley-anne Down, stage a heist of gold bul­lion in 1855. It’s a ter­rif­i­cally en­joy­able ride. Dir: Michael Crich­ton 1978, 12, 135min
