About Take the Money and Run

Take the Money and Run box art

Music-loving nebbish Virgil Starkwell (Woody Allen) launches his criminal career at a young age, but despite his failure to successfully pull off a single bank heist, he continues on an endless string of botched stickups even after he weds and starts a family. Renowned newsreel voice Jackson Beck narrates this uproarious faux documentary about the life and crimes of a bungling crook and his preposterous exploits.
