As the film progresses, two thieves, Max (Bernard Fox) and Quincey (Roy Kinnear), steal the famous Étoile de Joie (French for "Star of Joy") diamond and cleverly hide it in Herbie's fuel tank (Herbie was fitted with an external fuel filler cap for this film - a 1963 Beetle's cap actually being inside the front luggage compartment) in order to avoid being captured by a swarm of searching policemen.
He is best remembered for his roles as Dr. Bombay in the comedy fantasy series Bewitched (1964–1972), Colonel Crittendon in the comedy series Hogan's Heroes (1965–1971), Malcolm Merriweather in The Andy Griffith Show (1963–1965), Colonel Redford in Barnaby Jones (1975), Max in Herbie Goes To Monte Carlo (1977), Archibald Gracie IV in the epic romance-disaster film Titanic (1997), and Captain Winston Havelock in the action-adventure fantasy horror film The Mummy (1999).

Jacques Marin

It is also revealed not too far in that Inspector Bouchet (Jacques Marin), also known as "Double X" especially as a code name to the thieves, is the mastermind behind the museum robbery, though the fact of his scheme is revealed near the end of the movie.
Marin's fluency in English and his looks made him a familiar face in some major American and British productions (Charade, The Train, Marathon Man) and Disney movies (The Island at the Top of the World and Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo).
