In 1969, as the Summer of Love was in full swing, so was Swingin' London full of posh trends, which included a vibrant hip film scene with a new generation of British actors filling the cinemas. One of those new faces were Michael Caine and The Italian Job was to be his star vehicle into Hollywood. Despite being a box office failure, it was a cult favorite in part due to its unique cast and pithy dialogue. But did it deserve such cult status or should it have been stranded in the 60s? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris team up to blow the bloody doors off this caper.
