Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
A supposed window dresser is really a thief by natural inclination and he comes up with several ingenious schemes to make money. In one robbery, he and a few accomplices steal a statue from a church, sell it for an exorbitant sum to a few West German citizens, then cause the West Germans' car to crash -- whereupon the thieves take back the statue and set it up in the church again. In another robbery, some jewels from an antique shop are hidden in a special, trick place inside a wooden table that the thief had sold to the shop. Once the jewels are safe in the table, the thief buys the table back and he leaves the shop with the hidden jewels, no problem. Basically, this seems to be a do-it-yourself instruction kit for anyone with sticky fingers.
