I also got it upon seeing the first clue, but wanted to give somebody else a chance at it...probably should have piped up after about a day.

Oz the Great and Powerful is my first thought but I'm not sure "transportation professional" fits.

I admit that "transportation professional" is obfuscating -- read it as "trucker" instead.

Okay, sit tight, hold the fort, and keep the home fires burning and if we don't have a new quiz by dawn, call the President.

After an incompetent robber marries a policewoman, they discover that they are infertile. In order to appease his wife's longings for a child, the man steals one of a set of quintuplets, but mayhem ensues when the child's rich father sends a rabbit-shooting bounty hunter after the kidnapper.

That's the one!

And, of course, Donald Pleasance's portrayal of Blofeld is the one that inspired Dr Evil.

Synopsis:

Eight men eat breakfast at a Los Angeles diner before carrying out a heist. A mob boss and his son and underboss are responsible for planning the job. The rest don't know each other, and use aliases based on a common criteria.

After the heist, some thieves manage to meet at the rendezvous, despite being shot at and/or wounded. One of them believes that the job was a setup and that the police were waiting for them, and another thief violently denounces one of his companions as a "psychopath".

Things don't end well for most of them, but one manages to finally escape with the goods.

Sounds like a very colourful movie.

I might guess Reservoir Dogs.
