A perfect little crime-thriller sleep, 1978’s The Silent Partner returns to disc from Kino Lorber.

Miles Cullen (Elliott Gould, Busting) discovers how interesting life can be when he is transformed from mild-mannered bank teller into daring, ingenious bank robber in a matter of seconds. Held up at the bank by the criminal Reikle (Christopher Plummer, All the Money in the World), Miles manages to stash most of the money in a deposit box first. When Reikle realizes he’s been shortchanged, he plans to take revenge—and a great battle of wits ensues. To keep the money, Miles reaches new heights of courage, seducing the robber’s girlfriend (Céline Lomez, Plague) and his boss’s mistress (Susannah York, The Killing of Sister George).

Filled with equal parts intrigue, romance and unexpected twists, this chilling psychological thriller also features the great John Candy (Little Shop of Horrors) in an early film role. The screenplay by future filmmaker extraordinaire Curtis Hanson (Chasing Mavericks) was based on the book Think of a Number by Anders Bodelsen. Oh, and it was effectivelyy directed by Daryl Duke (Payday).

Bonus features include the following:

-NEW Interview with star Elliott Gould
-NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historians Howard S. Berger, Steve Mitchell and Nathaniel Thompson
-Radio Spot
