The cast includes Michael Caine, Charlie Croker, Noel Coward, Benny Hill, Raf Vallone, Tony Beckley and Rossano Brazzi.
Bridger is treated like royalty in prison and still manages to run the largest criminal empire in Britain. He is approached by former inmate Charlie Croker to back a scheme to steal $4,000,000 in gold from Fiat. This involves an ingenious rigging of Turin traffic computer to cause the world's largest traffic jam, and then an infamous getaway through the alleys, lanes and sewers. In addition, the plan has to be carried out right under the noses of the Mafia, who have already killed the originator of the plan, Beckerman.
The festival will primarily be an invitee only affair for guests selected through contests and promotions, along with other select invitees. The invites will be distributed through contests conducted at the venues. All the patrons visiting these cinemas will get a contest form on the purchase of tickets, and winners will win themselves an invite to the film festival. Certain number of tickets will also be sold at the cinema counters. The proceeds of the ticket sales will go to the OneSight Foundation.
OneSight is a family of charitable programs dedicated to improving vision through outreach, research and education.
