Any Number Can Win (1963)

Jean Gabin and the handsomest man in cinema, Alain Delon, star in this heist flick set in Cannes. Aging crook Charles (Gabin) gets out of prison and immediately begins plotting One Last Job. The proposition: robbing a casino with his former cell mate, the much younger and less experienced Francis (Delon). The plan involves Francis establishing himself as a playboy and dating one of the resort’s floorshow dancers in order to gain access to the backstage area. Half the fun is getting there, but the almost sensually suspenseful denouement is a surprise.
