Plot Summary
Summary When a thief holds up the bank where he works, a teller takes advantage of the situation to put aside $50,000 for his own use. The cops think the robber got every penny... but the gunman knows better, and he's determined to get every penny "due him".
Variety "...Entertaining....[An] excellent cast..." 04/04/1979
New York Times "...A dense, quirky, uncommonly interesting movie...with a high quotient of suspense..." 05/11/1979 p.C12
Entertainment Weekly "[Plummer's character is] a cold-blooded psychopath every bit as chilling as Anthony Hopkins' Hannibal Lecter..." -- Grade: B 04/13/2007 60

ReviewSource Canuxploitation
Review Proof positive that Canadians are capable of making good genre films when they want to, The Silent Partner is one of the few fondly remembered films from Canada's notorious tax shelter era. A well-developed story and above average performances made this thriller a commercial and critical success, and served as a basic template for producer Garth Drabinsky's next hit, The Changeling. Not only is The Silent Partner rife with Canadian content, but where else are you gonna see Christopher Plummer in drag?...Although the romantic leads are played by imported actors Elliott Gould and Susannah York, the supporting cast is almost entirely Canadian. Besides Plummer, Michael Kirby and Celine Lomez have sizable roles here, and John Candy makes a memorable cameo as well.
