Back when Michael Crichton was dabbling in directing, he made this movie, based on one of his novels. Sean Connery and Donald Sutherland conspire to pull off a jewel heist from a moving train — the first job of its kind — in 1855. True to the great caper genre, much of the time is spent plotting and preparing for the crime, including a wonderfully tense scene where the thieves sneak into a guarded office to make a copy of a key.
