For employees at the United California Bank in Laguna Niguel, one of Orange County’s tony bedroom communities, the morning of Monday, March 27th, 1972 begins like any other—until they find they are unable to open the vault. After several hours of futile efforts, a locksmith climbs on the roof to cut an access hole, but it appears that someone has already done the job for him. That someone was Phil Christopher. While Laguna Niguel slept, Phil disabled the security system and led a crew of Mafia associates and burglars to pull off the biggest bank caper in U.S. history. Their notorious withdrawal from the safe-deposit boxes of hundreds of wealthy Orange County, California residents grossed $30 million. The daring and magnitude of the United California Bank heist instantly captured the attention of the media, which dubbed Phil “Superthief.” Decades later, that fascination hasn’t wavered, with recent documentaries featuring Phil’s infamous burglary on Court TV and Discovery Channel. In the style of the motion picture Goodfellas, Superthief is the compelling story of a master thief and mob associate’s roller coaster ride through a life of crime and imprisonment, and the inside account of a daring burglary that made history.
