Eh merde… La longueur du titre m'a fait cliquer sur [ Add to complete list ] au lieu de [ Add a vehicle ]…

By Jove, because the length of the title I clicked [ Add to complete list ] instead of [ Add a vehicle ]!

It's not complete! It's in process of completion.

Spanish/Italian production made in Britain!

:king: Always good to see old films from Britain here. I was a bit disappointed when I thought it was only two cars!

Yeah, Sandie, don't worry, there will be other cars… Maybe some R*-j**ls, even.

But the quality (for the pics) is not there.

Well, basta cosi.

So, this was…

… directed by Michele Lupo.

I had a French dubbed copy, not only mutilated in its formate (it should have been 2.35:1, it is not) but shortened since the original is 111 min flick, and I saw a 92 min one. [Well, if I understand correctly what IMDb says, I had a French video version, maybe this explains that.]

Heist/spy movie, involving diamonds and (HM) secret services. And some humour too, to the beginning (with a spaghetti-western set, a false Sergio Leone, and so on) and the end. The rest is quite serious and, if not for the bank setting (almost science-fictionnesque and rather, well, childish), the settings and camera works are good, sometimes very good and surprising, as is the pace.

We have a pre-climax scene happening in "the Nottingham depot", full of old locomotives:

and a finale in an aerodrome. (Stuff for IMPDb to come.)

The story is complicated, with many twists. The whole stuff is not exactly my cup of tea but it is certainly entertaining. And the acting is not bad at all, with…

… Richard Harrison (severely beatten)…

… and Wolverhampton Wonder, Margaret Lee…

… and a good and restrained Adolfo Celi,

and Antonio Casas, Eduardo Fajardo, Andrea Bosic, Gérard Tichy, Luciano Pigozzi, etc.

The music signed Francesco De Masi is outrageously Bond-esque in the opening, then rather good. Voilà.

Quizz? OK:

So there is a Jaguar Mk.I somewhere among the more or less faked police cars bunch.
Amidst the thumbnails I post, what would be the better to illustrate it?

In the bottom thumb of the MG Magnette picture you will see two Jags, (no, not him!) the black Mk1 and the grey Mk2 for comparison. You could give that picture a page.
