23 January 2009 @ 11:09Solving the ending of The Italian Job

Do you remeber the heist movie The Italian Job? Not that one. The good one from 1969 starring Michael Caine. The movie ends with the thieves’ bus teetering precariously on the edge of a cliff, stack of gold at one end and the thieves at the other. John Godwin, of Godalming in Surrey, England has a solution for how to get the gold out of the back of the bus.

    that’s elaborate! I haven’t seen this movie, but I’m assuming they don’t get the gold.

    I risk spoiling the ending by telling you, but maybe I already have spoiled it.

    The movie ends leaving the viewer to speculate on what happens. The thieves have the gold in the bus, however anyone who attempts to make a move toward the gold risks unbalancing the bus and causing it to topple off the edge of the cliff.

    yes that would work but im not sure you would be able to let down the tires by hanging out a smashed window

    Guys, with no tires, and no fuel, how are they going to get to the UK?…

    the position of the bus is not correct !!! the middle of the bus was on a curb and no matter if they flat the tires
