- Ciao!

- Nice Charlie.

- Good to see you, Charlie.

Well, I thought,

a coming-out present!

- Very nice.

- Now, what would you like?


- Where's your old man?

- Dead.

In the Alps, in a car crash.

It wasn't an accident.

Oh. Well, there goes the job, then.

- Wait, Mr Croker.

- Yes, Mrs Beckerman?

This is for you.

What's this?

Some sort of a consolation prize?

Plans that my husband

didn't have time to complete.

- He wants you to finish them.

- Oh, he does, does he?

Tell me, erm... where do you figure

in the plans your husband

didn't have time to complete?

I don't. I am going to New York

tomorrow at 6:

Ah. Pity.

But... that still gives us

four hours to kill.

And you

still in your widow's weeds...

Charlie Croker, I am dead.

- Hello, Roger.

- I have arranged for my widow

- to get material to you in England.

- Yes, I got it.

There you must find the backing

to do the job.

You must, Charlie.

Because it is a work of genius.

Just think of it. A city in chaos,

a smash-and-grab raid

and four million dollars

through a traffic jam.

- Four million dollars?

This is the city of Turin,

the industrial capital of Italy.

The most modern in Europe, famed for

its architecture, and soon, I trust,

for the greatest robbery

of the 20th century.

This is the FIAT armoured convoy.

It leaves Turin airport every week.

It never carries

less than four million dollars.

I think we could take that over.

To reach its destination

the convoy has to travel

through one of the busiest

traffic systems in Europe,

a system

controlled by television cameras

and by the computer in this building,

the Turin Traffic Control Centre.

If you can get into this room,


you will cause the biggest traffic

jam in the history of the world.
