After making such American noir classics as Brute Force and The Naked City, blacklisted director Jules Dassin went to Paris to film what the Los Angeles Times called “one of the great crime thrillers, the benchmark all succeeding heist films have been measured against." A gang of master thieves concocts an almost impossible plan to rob a jewelry store on the Rue de Rivoli. Even though the wordless 30-minute robbery scene is delightfully low-tech, it provides white-knuckle suspense.
