The Hot Rock (1972) is a clever caper film with multiple capers, but all focused on a single, elusive object: the Sahara Stone, long a hot potato between two African countries, now about to be snagged out of its spot at the Brooklyn Museum by a quartet of capable but luckless thieves. The extraordinary cast is led by Robert Redford, George Segal, Ron Leibman, and Paul Sand, supported by the dazzling likes of Moses Gunn and Zero Mostel. Adapted from one of Donald Westlake’s delightful John Dortmunder novels by the singular William Goldman, the film is directed with panache by the great Peter Yates, and features a sensational Quincy Jones score.
