Her father, 'Manny' McGinnis (Clive Revill), is a Scotland Yard inspector who offers Barney a deal.

Warren Beatty portrays Barney Lincoln, an American playboy who, although independently wealthy, cannot resist his plan of breaking into a Playing Card factory in Geneva and then marking the printing plates. When the cards are printed they are shipped off to the Gambling Capitals of Europe, i.e. Monte Carlo, Estoril, Baden- Baden, Rome etc. Also London which is important later in the film. He then visits casinos using these cards which he can identify, with special spectacles, by simply looking at the reverse of each one.. This assists him in securing wins, mainly playing Baccarat, from each one.
His girl friend, played beautifully by dear Susannah York, draws her Scotland Yard detective father's attention to Barney's talents. Her father wants to now use him to play Poker to beat a London Gangster who is running drugs and happens to own his own Casino. Barney cannot lose or can he?
Another delightful part of this film is that it is filmed in swinging London which in itself makes for a interesting backdrop. Historic too.
My favourite actor in this film is Clive Revill who plays the Scotland Yard detective. He is wonderful. There is also a fleeting glimpse of the enigmatic Jane Birkin.
