Product description

Product Description

Never in the history of crime was so much taken from so many by so few... A gang of criminals acquire an old army truck and try to pass themselves off as military policemen. Their plan is to steal a £250,000 payroll intended for soldiers in the Middle East. Turpin (Stanley Baker) recruits Fenner (Tom Bell) and Swavek (Helmut Schmid) to make up a crack assault team. As the duty guard at the camp raises the barrier, Turpin knows there can be no turning back. His desperate gamble for riches will now be played out to its shattering climax...

Having just acquired Sky I came across this film of Films for Men I checked it on the Internet and was interested to know it had good reviews for a film I had never heard of.

It has a stellar cast of bit part actors who later became famous. You will enjoy yourself just spotting the actors such as Blakey and Arthur form on The Buses and Rodney Bewes etc. A veritable cornucopia of British acting talent. It is a gritty well constructed story.

You know what they are going to do but not the actual method. It then unfolds with plenty of surprises and twists.

An underrated British black and white film from the era when the story was all. Stanley Baker playing he usual put upon role of a character with a chip on his shoulder if not both of them Tom Bell in a very good supporting role.

It is set in the British countryside and the depiction of the British army during the 1950s looks and sound very authentic.

If you get the chance to watch this film, do not miss it.

I'd never seen this film, never even heard of it. But I found it whilst browsing Amazon and noticed that 2 of our best (deceased)actors were in it. Stanley Baker and Tom Bell. This was a very good film with an excellent script if maybe a bit far fetched, but it had me interested right up to the end. I wanted them to get away with it. Also look out for appearances by some other probably unknown actors at the time. Michael Robbins and Stephen Lewis from On The Buses. Well worth the money. If anyone from Odeon entertainment read this, can you release another excellent film called Jigsaw with Jack Warner 1962. Pleeeeeaaase?????

This virtually-unknown heist film from the early 1960s is a real find.
Thanks to Mondo Esoterica, I discovered this superb movie, which is now one of my all-time favourite British films.
An amazingly-suspenseful tale of three ex-army men who come up with a clever scheme for robbing their former employers.
Shot in moody black and white, on real Sussex locations mostly at night, this is one of Stanley Baker's very best features.
How on earth this is not much better known I simply do not understand, but I guess it's a perfect example in this regard of the madness and fickle nature of the film industry .
Beautifully photographed, with a minimalist music score and a deeply cynical eye, this tightly-woven tale does not contain a single unnecessary shot, right through to its thrilling climax.
The print used is acceptable though not great, and the sound is a little muffled at times, but just be thankful that Odeon have put this out on optical disc at all.
A ludicrously-tense piece of obscure British cinema, and one of the best of its type out there.
Outstanding.

A really well made true British film, with terrific performances and very able direction. It kept me entertained right until the closing credits. Well done Odeon for releasing this gem.

This is as good a 1950's or 1960's British film as you will get.
Great in black and white. Good atmosphere and interest.

Really good buy. A must for any collection.
