The Italian Job (1969)
Starring: Michael Caine, Noël Coward, Benny Hill, Tony Beckley, Raf Vallone
Directed by: Peter Collinson
Produced by: Michael Deeley
The plan was flawless...the job was executed perfectly...the escape was clean. The only threat mastermind thief Charlie Croker never saw coming was from a member of his own crew. After pulling off an amazing gold bullion heist from a heavily guarded palazzo in Venice, Italy, Charlie and his gang -- inside man Steve, computer genius Lyle, wheelman Handsome Rob, explosives expert Left-Ear and veteran safecracker John Bridger -- can't believe it when one of them turns out to be a double-crosser. Now the job isn't about the payoff, it's about payback! Enter Stella, a beautiful nerves-of-steel safecracker, who joins Charlie and his former gang when they follow the backstabber to California, where they plan to re-steal the gold by tapping into Los Angeles' traffic control system, manipulating signals and creating one of the biggest traffic jams in L.A. history!
The Italian Job (2003)
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Edward Norton, Charlize Theron, Christina Cabot, Mos Def
Directed by: F. Gary Gray
Produced by: Donald De Line
A band of thieves, led by Charlie Croker (Wahlberg), pulls off the ultimate heist by rigging the stoplights of the city of Los Angeles so that they can drive right out of the city with a carful of gold (in a safe that they're stealing back after Croker's double-crossing ex-partner, played by Edward Norton, stole it from Croker first), with nothing but green lights, while everyone else gets red lights, thus keeping the roads plugged with the largest traffic jam in L.A. history, and the police from pursuing them.
