Screening of The Italian Job (1969), Presented by Alfa Romeo

February 26, 2017 | 10:00 am - 12:00 pm |

Free

Join Modernism Week sponsor Alfa Romeo for a free screening of the quintessentially stylish film of the 1960s, The Italian Job.

This classic caper, remastered in high definition, is a flashy, fast romp that chases a team of career criminals throughout one of the biggest international gold heists in history. Michael Caine is Charlie Croker, a stylish robber and skirt-chaser just out of British prison. Shunning rehabilitation for recidivism, Croker takes over “The Italian Job,” a complicated plan to hijack gold bullion from Italy, right from underneath the noses of the Italian Police and the Mafia. The job, whose original mastermind was murdered, clearly requires the sponsorship of a richer, more established criminal than Croker. He turns to the auspices of the eccentric Mr. Bridger (Noël Coward in his last film role), a suave, regal, incarcerated English crime boss with a peculiar fascination with the Queen. Bridger provides Croker with a quirky group of Britain’s most infamous computer hackers (including a lascivious Benny Hill), bank robbers, hijackers and getaway drivers; the ex-con is soon well on his way to relieving Italy of the gold.
