A small time diamond merchant jumps at the chance to supervise the purchase and cutting of a large first class diamond. But when the diamond is stolen from him, he is blackmailed into pulling off a major heist at the Diamond Exchange, located at 11 Harrowhouse.
Diamonds, Cockroaches, Candice Bergen ! A so-so movie starring the now (in real life) very grumpy and cynical Charles Grodin.
A decent lighthearted caper movie. It was nice seeing a young Candace Bergen whipping around the countryside in sports cars.
This low-key heist film is elevated to the level of modest masterpiece thanks to a sublimely dry screenplay "adapted" by star Charles Grodin and pitch-perfect direction by Aram Avakian. Co-star Candice Bergen is used to great effect in the typically dreary role of the perfect girlfriend.
