The warder escorting Michael Caine to his release from prison at the start of The Italian Job is Father Jack Hackett from Father Ted. The scene was shot in Dublin's Kilmainham Jail and it was Frank Kelly's first film role (uncredited).

Frank Kelly cut his teeth on Hall's Pictorial Weekly, a satirical show on RTÉ in the seventies.... I remember it well.
