Rough Cut ★★★

Light caper wherein a woman is used as honeytrap bait to catch a jewel thief. Of course, Lesley-Anne Down couldn't possibly resist Burt Reynolds, and even though when the time comes David Niven's the only one here who can credibly match wits with Burt, mostly he just stays in his office and talks about how he wants to catch him. Occasionally flashes its director's deadpan wit and legendary blunt economy, especially during the climactic heist, but this resembles a very long episode of "Remington Steele" way more than a Siegel Film (though I'm led to understand he didn't have much control over this picture).
