Hudson Hawk (1991)
Thief extraordinaire Hudson Hawk (Bruce Willis) has just been released from prison and all he wants is a nice cappuccino. However, before he can savor his favorite beverage, the highly eccentric and wealthy Darwin Mayflower (Richard E. Grant) and his equally odd wife, Minerva (Sandra Bernhard), rope Hawk into an ambitious series of heists. Soon Hawk is stealing no less than major works by Leonardo Da Vinci, priceless pieces that the Mayflowers plan to use in an exceedingly nefarious way.

1A EXT. VINCI COUNTRYSIDE -RENAISSANCE -DAY 1A

A TRAVELING MERCHANT WITH AN UNFORGETTABLY ETCHED FACE

rambles past a timelessly beautiful Italian countryside

on a trusty mule.

A jaw-droppingly storybook castle looms before him. The

merchant dismounts and pulls forth a cask of wine. Settling

down upon a tree stump, he removes his hat and

inhales the fresh air with a life-loving sigh.

The merchant brings the cask to his lips when suddenly a

LOUD EXPLOSION is heard causing the merchant to douse

himself with a blast of vino.

UNFORGETTABLE MERCHANT

Leonardo, che pazzo...

The merchant shakes his fist up to a swish pan that

swings up toward a smoking window of the awesome castle.

3 INT. ROOM OF THE GOLD MACHINE 3

The charismatic LEONARDO DA VINCI, with his trademark

beard, drifts through the smoke of a mammoth room. A

flash of light causes him to put on a pair of very early,

very cool sunglasses. Something extraordinary reflects

off them.

Da Vinci moves to the Something, a gloriously incredible

machine. The opening CREDITS REVEAL its dazzling idiosyncrasies.

TWO COUGHING APPRENTICES haplessly try to disperse smoke

from the still billowing, mysteriously spectacular

Machine. Mirrors attached to parts of it reflect beams

of light which cut through the smoke like a Renaissance

laser show.

DA VINCI:

Marcolino, mettiamoli il plumba.

The apprentice throws a lever. A shunt near the furnace

turns. Steam escapes upwards.
