This week, we’re paying tribute to James Caan, who passed away last month at age 82, with his starring role in Michael Mann’s 1981 directorial debut. Co-starring Tuesday Weld, Willie Nelson and Robert Prosky, the film also features the big screen debuts of Dennis Farina, William Petersen and James Belushi. Mann brought in real-life professional thieves to consult on the film, which was co-produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and features a synth-heavy soundtrack by German electronica group Tangerine Dream. Playing a jewel thief and safecracker, James Caan often said that, next to The Godfather, this was the movie of which he was proudest. Now we’re tracking down the fifth alarm and stealing a peek at Thief to kick off Aug-Heist 2022!
