Plot: In HARRY AND WALTER GO TO NEW YORK, a pair of failed vaudevillian entertainers wind up as bank robbers in turn-of-the-century New York City. With their song-and-dance act going nowhere, Harry Dighby (James Caan) and Walter Hill (Elliott Gould) try their hand at committing small-time scams. They're caught red-handed during a failed carnival rip-off, however, and are sent to a federal prison. That's where they meet expert safecracker, Adam Worth (Michael Caine), who teaches them the ropes of robbery. After their release, Harry and Walter team up with Adam, receiving help in their high jinxs from Lissa Chestnut (Diane Keaton), a suffragette newspaper editor. Action and laughs permeate director Mark Rydell's excellent film, which features a spirited cast.
