Movie Info

Based on the novel by Gerald A. Browne, 11 Harrowhouse is a 1974 heist spoof with an all-star cast. The story concerns millionaire Clyde Massey (Trevor Howard) pressuring diamond merchant Howard R. Chesser (Charles Grodin) into robbing a London diamond exchange owned by Meecham (John Gielgud. Howard gets help from his girlfriend Maren Shirell (Candice Bergen), discontented employee Charles D. Watts (James Mason), and a cockroach in order to execute the plan. Once he has the fortune, Massey tries to double-cross his team of forced thieves, but his wealthy partner-in-crime Lady Anne Bolding (Helen Cherry) helps them escape. Charles Grodin, who also co-wrote the screenplay adaptation, provides voice-over commentary. 11 Harrowhouse is also known as Anything for Love and Fast Fortune. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

Audience Reviews for 11 Harrowhouse


Breezy little caper comedy with an expert cast and a jaunty pace. Grodin's voice over is a nice touch. Candice Bergen shows her adaptness at comedy years before Murphy Brown.

A fun and different kind of heist film. Despite only seeing the TV cut, I enjoyed the heck out of it. They even find a reason to have a big car chase near the end, with Candice Bergen at the wheel (!). What's not to like. Aram Avakian brings a sort of quirkiness to it, and it's cool to see the dad from the Beethoven movies in another role.
