The Italian Job


I watched The Italian Job, a 1969 adventure movie starring Michael Caine with Noel Coward and Benny Hill in cameo roles. It is well worth watching.
The movie starts out slowly, and it reminded me of how much faster-paced movies are nowadays. But then the action picks up, and there is an absolutely wonderful car chase involving three Austin Mini Minors as they race along sidewalks, through shopping malls, and up and down stairs. It's a funny movie and good entertainment.
