The Purse Stealers

I love the detail of this 1971 Public Information Film: the grey and brown polyester fashions, the bedraggled hair, the rotating rack with Joe Loss and Pinky and Perky records on it...and yes, that purse snatcher bloke does look familiar, doesn't he? Well, he would, as it's 'Body Stealers' star, Neil Connery.

Big brother Sean was originally offered the part but was already committed to making something called 'Diamonds Are Forever' and was forced to decline. His loss, Neil's gain.
