[Press release from the filmmakers.]
into the true events of one of the most notorious bank burglaries in
U.S history, $uperthief centers around career criminal and
Cleveland-native Phil Christopher and the United California Bank
Burglary that took place on March 24, 1972 in Orange County, California.
Breaking into the vault of the United California Bank, Christopher and
his team stole jewels, bonds, and cash that summed up to a total of 30
million dollars, a score which net worth grew and now currently stands
at about 100 million dollars. Creating a historically significant
impact and impression, Phil Christopher ingeniously disarmed the alarm
system and opened the vault using innovative strategy, tools, and
technology. Superthief is the exclusive inside story of the notable
United California Bank Burglary consisting of profoundly in-depth
interviews with firsthand accounts including the Superthief himself:
Phil Christopher. This documentary explores the many curious factors of
this historical event: How and why did they do it? Where are the lost
bonds? What happened to Phil Christopher? And who is he now?
Tommy Reid says the film's tale is an intriguing one, and he doesn't
doubt it'll hook VOD consumers as much as it did DVD enthusiasts earlier
in the year.
"It's a great story", the filmmaker said.. "This documentary exposes what a $uperthief will do to accomplish his goals."
Director/Producer Tommy Reid believes $uperthief, which has received 5 star reviews, will reach a wider audience via VOD (https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/superthief/id741518645).
"VOD is a great outlet for $uperthief; people can now purchase and view the film when they want on any device
they want - be it a computer, tablet or mobile phone", he says, adding
that $uperthief should appeal to those that love documentaries, historic
pieces, and a good, solid true-crime story."
