Hot Millions (1968)

Hot Millions (1968, GBR/USA) C-106m. ** D: Eric Till. Starring Peter Ustinov, Maggie Smith, Karl Malden, Bob Newhart, Robert Morley, Cesar Romero. Con-artist Ustinov is released from prison after years and finds that computers have become an important business factor. He uses computer expert Morley's résumé to get hired by Malden's wealthy international company and proceeds to trick them out of a lot of money. Mildly plotted farcical comedy is old-fashioned in the negative sense of the word. Ustinov barely keeps it on track. Not really a heist comedy, as some might believe. Written by Ustinov and Ira Wallach, who also scripted the cult hit DON'T MAKE WAVES (1967).
