Review: ‘Perfect Friday’

No one else can steal $1 million with quite the flair of the British. A caper in point is Perfect Friday with Ursula Andress, Stanley Baker, and David Warner as a triangle of totally amoral thieves in a charming, ingenious and sexy bank job, tightly masterminded to the split-second, by director Peter Hall.

No one else can steal $1 million with quite the flair of the British. A caper in point is Perfect Friday with Ursula Andress, Stanley Baker, and David Warner as a triangle of totally amoral thieves in a charming, ingenious and sexy bank job, tightly masterminded to the split-second, by director Peter Hall.

Andress and Warner play a casually-married couple, a vain, self-centered, modish and jet-setting playboy English lord and his Swiss wife, who live now, pay later, but at the moment are thoroughly bankrupt.

The gorgeously undressed Andress spends a great deal of the footage at maximum exposure, but also demonstrates a flair for low-key comedy. Warner is superb as the foppish young lord.
