Lassiter

Set in London in 1934, Lassiter is part caper picture, part intrigue story. Nick Lassiter (Tom Selleck) is an elegant jewel thief who is blackmailed by a coalition of the FBI and English police to liberate $10 million in Nazi diamonds passing through London. Selleck resists, but really isn't given much choice since the alternative is a stay in a British prison.

Set in London in 1934, Lassiter is part caper picture, part intrigue story. Nick Lassiter (Tom Selleck) is an elegant jewel thief who is blackmailed by a coalition of the FBI and English police to liberate $10 million in Nazi diamonds passing through London. Selleck resists, but really isn’t given much choice since the alternative is a stay in a British prison.

The diamonds are to be transported out of London by none other than Lauren Hutton, playing German agent Countess Kari von Fursten.

Hutton is totally unbelievable with her Germanic accent and evil habits. As the girlfriend, Jane Seymour is wasted. Her role is basically to stand by as Selleck races about trying to grab the diamonds and run.
