This movie was first released about three years after its source novel of the same name by Gerald A. Browne had been first published in 1978. "Green Ice" was the seventh novel written by Browne. This film is the second and final filmed adaptation [to date, April 2017] of a Browne novel. The first had been 11 Harrowhouse (1974) about seven years earlier. Both pictures are heist movies.

This is one of those movies with a cult following. The plot might sound like something you heard before. But its the charm of this movie that sets it apart from the rest. I have seen this movie over 30 times since 1981 and I never tire of it. Some movies are just a pleasure to watch and listen to. It's like listening to your favorite song over and over. It's laid back and just plain enjoyable without all the stress we often get from modern movies.
Certainly a lot of the credit goes to Bill Wyman for making the score. Ultimately it is what puts the shine on Green Ice.
