Dollars

Genre: Mystery and Thriller, Comedy; Starring: Warren Beatty, Goldie Hawn, Gert Frobe; Director: Richard Brooks; Author: Richard Brooks; Runtime (in minutes): 120; MPAA Rating: R

Tousled and charming, Beatty plays a security expert plotting an intricate bank robbery in Dollars. As Dawn Divine, his callgirl accomplice, Hawn giggles and bats her Keane-size eyes. Writer-director Richard Brooks’ quirky caper — a forgotten box office dud finally on DVD — snaps, crackles, and pops like a heist flick should. B+
