Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The unimaginative title Precious Jewels is affixed to this equally lackluster tale concerning two gangs of jewel thieves. Pooling their resources, the thieves attempt to pull off the heist of the century-or at least, of the week. In the tradition of Rififi and Topkapi, we are apprised as to the personal reasons that the various participants became involved in the theft. Nearly half of the film's 77-minute running time is devoted to the caper itself. Precious Jewels was produced by a company calling itself Art in Motion-Times Ten. No comment.
