‘A Fish Called Wanda’ Synopsis
A Fish Called Wanda begins with the London gangster George Thomason and his crony Ken Pile planning a jewel heist. They hire two Americans: a con woman named Wanda Gershwitz, and weapons expert named Otto West to assist with the plan.
Ken has a terrible stutter, and loves animals which the mean-spirited Otto takes advantage of throughout the film. While Otto and Wanda are lovers, they keep this a secret from George and Ken. Instead, they pretend to be brother and sister so Wanda can seduce the men to get what she wants from them.
The heist goes off without fail, and as the thieves flee, they nearly run over an elderly woman out on a walk with her doggies. She catches a glimpse of George without his ski mask on. George, Wanda and Otto hide the diamonds in a small safe at an old garage. They then split up with plans to lay low for a few days before sneaking out of the country. However, once Otto and Wanda leave, George moves the diamonds (which Wanda and Otto will later find out are gone) to an undisclosed location.
Back at Otto’s, he tries to make sweet, sweet love to Wanda, but she instead has him phone the police with George’s name. The cops arrest George for the heist when they find incriminating evidence on his pants from the jeweler’s.read full summary
