Often imitated but never surpassed, Grand Slam is a classic heist thriller starring screen greats Janet Leigh, Edward G. Robinson, and Klaus Kinski. A cunning schoolteacher (Robinson) recruits an elite team of international criminals for the ultimate caper. He aims to take $10 million in diamonds from an impenetrable Rio de Janeiro vault at the frenzied peak of the city's Carnival. The planning is meticulous. The crime must run like clockwork. But even if they can pull off the most daring theft in history, the wildest surprises of all might still be awaiting them? Hailed by Roger Ebert as "one of the best heist movies" with a slam-bang twist ending, Grand Slam co-stars Robert Hoffmann, Riccardo Cucciolla, George Rigaud, and Adolfo Celi. Giuliano Montaldo provides taught direction in this film, featuring a swinging score by the legendary Ennio Morricone.
