Criminal masterminds? Don't bank on it. George C. Scott (Patton) stars in this hilarious film that brims with wonderful and imaginative silliness. Fresh from his recent jailbreak, criminal mastermind Walter Ballantine (Scott) is already plotting his next bank heist. And this time he's thinking big-he's not just taking the loot; he's stealing the whole bank! Beset by a hapless crew, a lusty backer and an overzealous prison warden, Ballantine soon discovers that when your getaway vehicle is the bank itself, it pays to be America's most driven criminal. Gower Champion (My Six Loves) directs a comical cast of first-rate actors that includes Sorrell Booke (TV's The Dukes of Hazzard), Clifton James (Juggernaut), Bob Balaban (2010), Frank McRae (48 Hrs.), Don Calfa (Foul Play) and the lovely Joanna Cassidy (The Package) in this hilarious comedy based on a Donald E. Westlake novel (Cops and Robbers).
