    I have a vague memory of a film proberly made in the 70s about 2 brothers or possibly friends . One is a theif and one was very sucsessfull. The sucsessful one bet the other he couldnt break into his new building and crack the safe at the top. The theif excepts the bet and gets a gang together. They blow the safe and the brother tells his gang it was for a bet and there not to touch the diamonds, they ignore him and take them setting of alarms etc and get caught. The problem is I cant remember the name of the film or who was in it, I would be most gratefull if someone could help me. Many thanks.

    It sounds like The Jokers (1967) with Ollie Reed & Michael Crawford.

    I thought that too but unless the description is misremembered they did actually plan to steal the diamonds in that film but then to return them; the notion of theft being on the intention to permenently deprive the owner of the goods.
