Jack of Diamonds is a 1967 film directed by Don Taylor filmed in Germany that was released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. It stars George Hamilton in the lead role of an international cat burglar and jewel thief.


The film was originally meant to be directed by Herschel Daugherty. It filmed in New York for a month and then 12 weeks in Europe in Paris, the Bavarian Alps, Genoa and a Munich studio.[1]

Producer Sandy Howard described George Hamilton as "a hot commodity now" before filming, due in part to the fact he was dating the President's daughter.[1] Reports put his fee around this time at $100,000 a movie.[2]
