Overview
All aboard for runaway action and suspense in this riveting masterpiece from writer and director Michael Crichton (Coma)! Sean Connery (Meteor), Donald Sutherland (Klute) and Lesley Anne-Down (Sphinx) star in this "spine-tingling and suavely performed" adventure (The Hollywood Reporter) based on history's first train robbery. Stunningly shot by legendary cinematographer Geoffrey Unsworth (2001: A Space Odyssey), this "ingenious" (Variety) and wonderful crime caper delivers mile-a-minute thrills and breathtaking excitement. Connery is Edward Pierce, a master thief who conceives a brilliant plan to steal a fortune in gold bars from a railroad payroll car. But to pull off the most daring heist in history, Pierce must join forces with a safecracker (Sutherland) and his own beautiful girlfriend (Down) in a series of intricately plotted thefts that will test all of their nerve, camaraderie and larcenous skill.
