Grand Slam (Ad ogni costo) is a 1967 Italian crime film directed by Giuliano Montaldo and stars Edward G Robinson, Klaus Kinski and Janet Leigh.[1]


A seemingly mild-mannered teacher, Professor James Anders, is an American working in Rio de Janeiro. Bored with years of teaching, Anders decides to put together a team to pull off a diamond heist during the Rio Carnival in Brazil.

A team of four international experts is brought together to carry out the robbery: a safe cracking specialist, a master thief, a mechanical genius, and a playboy whose job it is to seduce the only woman with a key to the building holding the diamonds, the lovely Mary Ann.
