Caine as Charlie Croker| Caine Mini Biography| Filmography | Events & Awards

Introducing Charlie Croker...
Charlie Croker - a cocky, cool, jack-the-lad small time London crook inherits the plans to an almost impossible robbery when he gets out of prison. It's a big job, and needs some serious backing, which he finds in the form of Mr. Bridger, who is a big time British mobster who conducts his 'business' from the prison Croker spent time in. Croker gets his backing, along with a beating (for breaking into Bridger's toilet to give him the plans) and begins the task of preparing for the job - to nick $4 million in gold bullion from under the noses of the Mafia in the heart of Turin, and escaping in three Mini Coopers and a coach.
