- Destination, monsieur?

- Monte Carlo.

[ Broken French ]

Au rue, ah- de "Boisie-arie. "

Au rue Dubec...

a d-droite

a Place "Dee-i-eena. "

- Will you give it to me in English?

- Sure. We're lost.

- Thanks. Hey!

- [ Tires Screeching ]

- Herbie!

- What's he doing?

I think he's getting us


- [ Chuckling ]

- Hi, there.

Say, uh, we're looking

for the Trans France Race Exposition.

Oui, straight ahead on your right. You

can't miss it. That's going to be some race.

- Yeah.

- Well, you're looking at the winner right here!

This car?

The winner?

- He didn't.

- He did.

[ Crowd Murmuring ]

All of this

for the museum payroll?

The most magnificent diamond

in the world! L 'etoile dejoie.!

Could we have just

a little peek?

On this very afternoon,

at 1:
00, precisely...

you and all of Paris

will be able to take the peek!

[ Cheering, Applauding ]

Now, fresh from his triumphs on the

European racing circuit, Bruno Von Stickle...

- who'll be driving his Lazer 917 GTE coupe.

- [ Crowd Applauding ]

Here we have

a magnificent Pantera-

Ah, I see the American entry

is just arriving, Mr. Jim Douglas.

[ Crowd Laughing ]

Mr. Douglas will

be driving a-

a- a-

Mr. Douglas will be driving

a- a most unusual entry.

[ Laughing Continues ]

- Something funny must've happened.

- Uh-huh. Us.

How about giving Jim Douglas

and his partner Wheely Applegate...

- a nice, warm welcome, huh?

- [ Crowd Cheering ]

Eh, this little car of yours

is the toast of America.

- When was your last win?

- Uh... 12 years ago.

That was only because,

uh, that was our last race.

- Yeah.

- [ Crowd Laughing ]

Yes, this race-

We're kind of staging a comeback here...

and so it's very

important to us.

I- I mean, we won't be coming back

very far unless we qualify, will we?


Are you kiddin'?

Don't let his modesty or this little car

coming out of retirement fool ya!

There isn't a finer-tuned,

cleaner engine anywhere!

I'm sure it should

be easy to keep clean.

All you have to do is drop it in the

washing machine along with your socks.

[ Crowd Laughing ]

Appreciate your humour...

but just don't you worry about

this little washing machine- car!

- [ Chuckling ]

- It's a real jewel!

But Monsieur Ribeaux,

isn't it too much responsibility...

- for one man?

- One man?

One man and the finest security system

that can be devised.

- [ Beeping ]

- All in the computer.

Now, this alone will keep the diamond

safe from the grasp of a thief.

- But monsieur, one would only have

to reach in and- - [ Alarm Blaring ]

[ Alarm Continues ]

[ Alarm Stops ]

The pillow is sensitive to the heat of

the hand when it gets close to the diamond.

I'm sorry, monsieur.

What does that do?

I'm engaging a system of electric eye

beams that surrounds the pedestal.

One last precaution,


Would you please

step out of the room?

Now the entire floor

is a trap!

The mere ashes from a cigar

would activate the alarm.

Right on schedule.

Only ten steps to six million dollars.

One step to Devil's Island

if anything touches that floor.

Pardon, Monsieur Ribeaux, but you forgot

to give me the computer and the numbers.

I did not forget! They were put in

my trust and will remain with me.

One does not part

with the only copy in existence!

Patience, Quincey.

Electronics is the answer.

This notebook is our passport

to the future.

I think I shall put my trust

in this bit of rope.

[ Beeping ]

When the man has it all worked out

for us, silly not to use it.

[ Chuckling ]

You had to bring

the whole kit, didn't you?
