    Hello,
    I am a French-speaking Belgian. English is not my native language, please excuse my mistakes.

    I'm looking for two movies. Two Heist movies.

    In the late 70s, looking to the Belgian television I saw a large number of English films, there are two I've never found the title.

    I think the two are in color, but I could be wrong. Are we already had a color TV back then?

    The first begins with the image of a double decker bus that runs in London. We see a sniper rifle and then a tire of the bus that exploded. He made a hole in the road and repair workers come.
    It is actually a group of men that goes through the pipes of drinking water (SCUBA) to take the gold from the bank England. They empty the golden pyramid from below.
    Finally, he does not profit from their money because the pound depreciates.
    The last frame looks like the first, except that the bus rolls into a city in South America.

    The second tells how inmates benefit from the final FAcup to leave their prison. They go to the national printing and printing lots of banknotes. Upon leaving prison, he does not profit from their money because they have reversed two inks.

    If any of you can help me find these movies, or just their names, it would be great.

    Thank you in advance

    St�phane

    I think the second one is this:

    Sette volte sette (1968) - IMDb

    It's been a long time since I've seen it and I can't remember the details but Loophole has robbers using the sewers to break into a bank.

    The first film may also be Italian, Sette Uomini d'oro / Seven Golden Men (1965)? It's been a while since I saw it so please forgive me if I'm completely misremembering it or mixing it up with something else.

    Euryale is rarely wrong and has a vast knowledge of film. Mind you she also has the ability to turn people to stone with a look (like her sister) so no one would ever want to question her

    I've just watched "Sette volte Sette" on YouTube, lots of interesting shots of Thames locations - I also found the shots of the Bowater paper warehouse a nice touch as I actually work in newsprint.

    Sette volte Sette" also has a double decker bus and scuba diving outfits. Not the sniper or ending though. Could the second movie be confused with it?

    Tony

    lots of Italian movies of that period use London locations - you should check some more out - Kriminal & Il Maschera Di Kriminal are 2 good recommendations - there's also 1 starring Adolfo Celi & Richard Harrison - that uses quite a lot of london locations
