Robinson) recruits his young protégé Paul Mason (Rod Steiger), just released from prison, to help him rob the famous casino of four million dollars. The plan is straightforward. On the night of the Governor’s Ball, Theo will create a distraction in the casino by having one of the team collapse requiring urgent medical attention. During that time, Paul and another member of the crew will get the money from the vault. When the ambulance arrives, the money will leave with the sick man. The plan is a good one, but not everyone will survive the robbery, and no one will get rich from it.
Plot: A discredited professor and a sophisticated thief decide to join together and pick a team to pull off one last job–the casino vault in Monte Carlo.

“The Robbery That Rocked Monte Carlo!” or “Little Ceasar Meets Al Capone!”
It seems like only yesterday that the gang and myself went to see this SEVEN THIEVES picture. It was playing at our local movie show,The Ogden Theatre at 63rd & Marshfield, here in Chicago. It was a Double Feature with THE PURPLE GANG, a production from Allied Artists (formerly known as Monogram Pictures, a long time resident of Hollywood’s Poverty Row.
The advertising stated that it starred “……..Edward G.Robinson(Little Ceasar) and Rod Steiger(Al Capone).” Gangster films were enjoying a renewed popularity at that time. AL CAPONE was released the prior year and did okay at the Box Office. Desilu Playhouse had aired the two part “THE UNTOUCHABLES”, which led to the weekly series.
Well, my 13 year old mind thought that we were seeing something that would be like ‘Little Ceasar Meets Al Capone!” We all left the show giving the ‘thumbs up’ to THE PURPLE GANG, but not really caring for SEVEN THIEVES. Small wonder, when a bunch of kids see a picture like this that will have a lot of material that was really “TWA”(over our heads).
Well, only a few months ago this former guttersnipe saw SEVEN THIEVES again. This time I understood it, I think.
Billed as “The Robbery That Rocked Monte Carlo!” It is a caper film, and a very good one at that. It has a fine cast, in addition to Mr. Robinson and Mr. Steiger, Joan Collins, Elli Wallach, Sebastian Cabot, Alexander Scourby, et al.
Anyone would enjoy this film. It’s well worth seeing, and our old gang would heartily agree.
Interesting Little Casino Caper
“Seven Thieves” is an average but interesting little “rob the casino” caper, raised a level by the quality of the acting.
Edward G. Robinson stars as “the professor” who masterminds a plot to rob a Monte Carlo casino. For Robinson, this represents his one last chance to make a major score before he cashes in. Rod Steiger plays on old acquaintance from the States whom Robinson tries to recruit in order to complete his team. Joan Collins, looking gorgeous, is the femme fatale and Eli Wallach as Poncho the Sax playing member of the group. Michael Dante, Alexander Scourby and Berry Kroeger round out the rest of the “Seven Thieves”. Sebastian Cabot also appears as the casino director.
Robinson in what amounts to a supporting role, is excellent as always. Steiger’s method acting seems a little misplaced here, however under Henry Hathaway’s direction, he does deliver a good performance. Collins was never more beautiful and performs a couple of provocative (for 1960) dances in a cabaret with Wallach.
“Seven Thieves” is always interesting but contains little in the way of physical action. There are a couple of surprises as well, but I thought the ending was a bit of a let down. Nevertheless, It is still an interesting film to watch if only see the performances of the stellar cast.
