McDonald's sued over nude photos

The mystery of The Italian Job's cliff-hanger has been resolved after almost 40 years by Sir Michael Caine.  The 1969 film ends with a gang of gold thieves hanging over a ravine in a bus. Every step they take towards the loot threatens to tip them into the abyss.

"Hang on lads, I've got a great idea," says Sir Michael's character, Charlie Croker... and then the credits roll.

Well, I’m not going to reveal it here! You’ll just have to go to:
