I am trying to find the title to an old movie. I saw it on British TV about 25 years ago. It was a black and white film, possibly made and set in the 50s or 60s. I thought it was a British film.
It had a gang trying to break into a bank to rob it. There was some planning involved. The only scene I remember is they park a big van outside the bank, they've cut a hole out in the floor of the van, through which they lift a manhole cover up out of the ground underneath and climb down into the sewers and so enter the bank that way. I have been trying to find this film for years. I thought possibly, it might have stared Sid James or some other of the well-known comedy Brit actors of the time, but on searching every way I can for the last 15 years, so far I cannot trace it at all.
I always thought it was a bumbling comedy crime film, but now I am doubting that it might have been a serious crime film. I am not sure if this is much to go on, but any kind of help would be most appreciated. Thanks for reading.
