Aihe: Re: [SCREEN-L] movies about pickpockets?

I'm sure you already have Bruce Geller's 1973 film *Harry in Your Pocket*.
There's also Curt Bois' character who pickpockets unsuspecting targets in Michael Curtiz' *Casablanca,* the pickpockets in Jack Conway's *The Unholy Three *remake and the self-confessed kleptomaniac with a veritable library of stolen wallets in Steven Spielberg's animated film *The Adventures of Tintin *(2011).
