Favorite Caper stories

What are your favorite caper stories?
Mine include: Thomas Crown Affair, The Italian Job, even Charade (a bit of a stretch to call it a heist or caper film).

It's Illegal

For those of you who read the blog, you know that I seldom, if ever, use it to hawk another author's books, but I have to give pause and encourage you to try Paul Levine if you haven't read him yet. He's smart and funny and a terrific writer. His newest is Illegal. If you have an empty bedside table, go GET A COPY!
