Synopsis:
Charley Varrick is a small-time crook who outfoxes the Mob in this fast-paced offbeat thriller directed by Don Siegel. Academy Award winner Walter Matthau stars in a rare dramatic role, along with the powerful Joe Don Baker, as a tough Mafia hitman. Charley robs small banks with small payrolls. That keeps him out of trouble until he stumbles onto the Mob's secret stash. The chase is on as the Big Boys go after the "Last of the Independents". It's a heart-pounding ride that builds to a fiery airborne climax as Charley makes his last desperate run for the Mexican border and safety.

Crackerjack heist thriller has it all - and then some! - Charley Varrick review by IM

Spoiler Alert

Despite its age this holds up as a beautifully constructed and directed heist-gone-wrong caper, superbly cast, highly entertaining and memorable. Enjoy!
