The Great Ice Rip-Off is a 1974 American television movie directed by Dan Curtis. It premiered on ABC as the ABC Movie of the Week on November 6, 1974. It is a comedic heist film about a group of diamond thieves who use a bus headed from Seattle to San Diego for their getaway.
Variety reviewed the film as having "enough sharp corners to keep viewers alert, and Curtis' eye for human foibles manages to get laughs. Curtis picks up credit for being able to derive amusement from a caper film after the onslaught of the genre in recent years."
The working title for the film was A Break in the Ice.
