Jacqueline plays "Laura", the girl-friend/accomplice of jewel thief "Webster" (Ryan O'Neal) in this light-hearted caper movie. Warren Oates plays the investigator who dogs Webster. Directed by Bud Yorkin; script by Walter Hill; music by Henry Mancini (also "Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?").
Jacqueline said: Of all the movies I've made, it's the one I have the worst memories of. Arguments, long waits, time lost, a little acting, and then back to the arguments. We had a director who was supposed to be the director, but the poor man had competition - one of those executives who thinks he can do everything better, so he started directing. Each had his own ideas and they never agreed. [Hello! #250, 1993.]
"The Thief Who Came to Dinner" is available on video.
