PG Certificate


Our Score
This pleasing but predictable heist caper boasts an extraordinary cast. Giving one of the better performances of his twilight years, David Niven plays a criminal mastermind who blackmails old lag Richard Jordan into joining his audacious assault on a swanky bank. Making his first film in five years, veteran director Ralph Thomas fails to impose himself on the familiar sequence of events, but coaxes a splendid performance from American actress Gloria Grahame.


A professional criminal masterminds a daring plan to relieve a high-security bank of a large fortune in cash. An ex-convict working at the bank is blackmailed into assisting with the heist, but starts to find he enjoys returning to his villainous ways. Crime drama, starring David Niven and Richard Jordan.
