The Master Touch (1972)

National General Pictures
Directed by Michele Lupo
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

Safe cracker Kirk Douglas, fresh out of prison, is recruited by his old boss for one more big heist. Douglas, reluctant at first, decides the payout is worth the risk, but only if he does it his way. He recruits amateurs, including his girlfriend and a trapeze artist, to help him. There is a good car chase through the streets of Berlin. The break-in takes up the final half hour or so and there is an unexpected plot twist. Very good of its kind, but in desperate need of a full restoration and rescue from the public domain.
