Seven Thieves is a 1960 crime heist film directed by Henry Hathaway and starring Edward G. Robinson, Rod Steiger, and Joan Collins. The film revolves around a group of seven strangers who are brought together by a wealthy mastermind, Professor Theo Wilkins (Edward G. Robinson), to plan and execute a daring heist on the Casino de Monte-Carlo.

The film begins with Professor Theo Wilkins, a retired master thief, recruiting a group of unlikely thieves for his latest heist. Wilkins's band of seven thieves includes the tough and ruthless Paul Mason (Rod Steiger), the seductive and sultry Melanie (Joan Collins), the reliable Jack (Eli Wallach), the explosives expert Louis (Michael Dante), the safe cracker Pancho (Berry Kroeger), the doorman Albert (Sebastian Cabot), and the driver and mechanic Leon (Alexander Scourby).

Together, the group devises an intricate plan to rob the vault of the Casino de Monte-Carlo, one of the most heavily secured buildings in the world. However, as the group prepares for the heist, tensions rise between the members, causing suspicion and distrust. Paul, in particular, becomes increasingly paranoid and chaotic as the day of the heist approaches.

Despite the internal conflict, the heist goes according to plan until a complication arises, ultimately forcing the group to improvise and adapt in order to escape with the money. As they flee the scene of the crime, the group faces a series of unexpected obstacles, including a narrow window of time to escape before the police catch up to them.

As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that each member of the group has their own hidden agenda, leading to an explosive climax where deep secrets are revealed and lives are forever changed.

One of the film's standout performances comes from Edward G. Robinson, who delivers a masterful performance as the smooth-talking and calculating Professor Theo Wilkins. Robinson's mentor-like character serves as the glue that holds the group together and keeps them on track during the heist. Robinson is able to convey a sense of wisdom and experience that is instrumental to the success of the operation, while also keeping the audience on edge with a sense of mystery and intrigue.

Another notable performance comes from Rod Steiger, who portrays the volatile and unpredictable Paul Mason. Steiger's intense portrayal of the character brings a sense of danger and unpredictability to the film, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats with every scene he is in.

Joan Collins gives a seductive and alluring portrayal of Melanie, the group's femme fatale who adds a layer of complexity and tension to the plot. Her ability to manipulate the men in the group adds a level of intrigue and uncertainty to the heist.

Overall, Seven Thieves is a well-crafted and suspenseful crime thriller that keeps the audience engaged from start to finish. The film's intricate plot and dynamic characters make for a thrilling ride that will leave viewers on the edge of their seats until the very end.
