Opening 25 minutes
Perhaps new and daring back in 1966 but I couldn't really see the point of wasting 25 minutes of the film on something which turned out to be just an explanation of how the 'heist' should go.
It was nice seeing the stars in action and the acting was never less than enjoyable although it's probably best to forget the 'special effect' of the helicopter in flight.
I guess back in 1966 the would have been seen as a fast paced comedy caper with a clever opening gimmick but here in 2014 after countless heist films and episodes of Hustle it just came across as very undemanding pleasant entertainment.
I wish Michael and Shirley were still young.
