Plot Summary
With the help of his bumbling partner, Al G. Karp (Sorrell Booke), master thief Walter Upjohn Ballentine (George C. Scott) breaks out of prison and resumes his illustrious criminal career. Ballentine recruits a team of mismatched misfits including lock-picking expert Hermann X (Frank McRae) and the disarmingly lovely Eleonora (Joanna Cassidy). Ballentine's team lays the groundwork for a heist at a new bank branch -- one conveniently, though only temporarily, located in a wheeled trailer.
