The Anderson Tapes
Directed by Sidney Lumet
Sparkling wit, non-stop action and dynamic stars Sean Connery (Goldfinger, The Great Train Robbery) and Dyan Cannon (Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, Shamus) make this heist film one of the best of its kind. After ten years in the cooler, Duke Anderson (Connery) heads for the luxurious apartment of his ex-girlfriend, Ingrid Everleigh (Cannon), where he masterminds an elaborate plot to rob the entire building. Financed by an underworld boss (Alan King, Casino), he recruits the best burglars in town, including an antiques dealer (Martin Balsam, The Taking of Pelham One Two Three) and a young safecracker (Christopher Walken, The Deer Hunter, King of New York). But what he doesn’t know is that each detail of the robbery is secretly recorded by electronic “bugs” planted throughout the building. Smartly directed by cinema legend Sidney Lumet (12 Angry Men, Serpico) from the nationwide bestseller, and featuring a memorable musical score by the great Quincy Jones (In the Heat of the Night), The Anderson Tapes blends satire and suspense into a wholly entertaining caper concoction.
