Jewelry Heist of the Century in Paris

Definitely naughty, not at all nice.

Some thieves did some early holiday shop(lift)ing in Paris on Thursday.

To the tune of $100 million.

Dressed as women, the jewel-hungry villains robbed the Harry Winston boutique on avenue Montaigne at gunpoint in "the Heist of the Century," snatching diamonds, watches, and other jewelry.

Pere Noel will be depositing a lump of unrefined coal in their stockings this year. If he can find them, of course.

You're all spot-on -- I think Audrey Hepburn already starred in the movie versions -- perhaps a combo of Charade and... hmm, what was the movie about the great diamond heist?

Maybe the thieves had literary aspirations as they plied their theatrics for the job...
