Storyline

The City Trust and Savings Bank sends Vice President Dave Bennett to a branch office to check on a Charles Patterson. Charlie has greatly increased the amount of money in savings and is very involved with all of his customers. When offered a chance to run a new branch in Santa Monica, Charlie declines and is taken ill. His wife, Barbara, tells Dave that Charlie needs an operation and she will fill in for him at his savings window. Against the advice of Martha and Branch manager Jerry Helm, Dave does hire Barbara to do the job. When Dave works the window when Barbara goes to lunch, he notices that the accounts are short and the amount comes out to $9000. Dave does not know if Barbara or Charlie has taken the money, but Barbara blames Charlie and as Dave is sweet on her, he personally loans her the money. Dave hopes that this will end the problems and that Barbara will divorce Charlie but there is more trouble ahead for Dave Bennett. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

how not to rob a bank
7 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bank Vice-President Jeffrey Lynn (Bennett) is sent to a branch where there seems to be a star teller Roger Pryor (Charlie Patterson) who encourages customers to save. The Branch Manager John Litel (Jerry) invites Lynn to watch Pryor's technique with customers. Pryor is very annoying and seems to butt into each of his customer's lives, including extra-curricular activities in an "I'll come round and water your plants for you" kind of way. A very annoying man. He should be fired on the spot or told to act more professionally. Anyway, the numpties in charge reckon he is a good thing and plan to promote him to a managerial position. He doesn't want it, though. What is the reason for this and what are the women up to?

It's an OK programmer. Nothing too interesting. You watch it, suspect the wrong people, then figure things out, and then it ends. If you really want to rob a bank, do it subtly like I did. You don't go in with guns blazing. What I did was actually accidental but I got £100 out of it. I used to work as a bank teller and I opened an account for someone after the tills had been added up and closed and put the money (£100) in the safe for overnight security with the intention of putting the transaction through the following morning. Well, it happened that I fancied a night out that night but I didn't have any money, so I borrowed the £100 out of the safe…….with every intention of replacing it. Only, I ended up getting another job and never got to put the money back. The customer wouldn't have noticed – he was one of these rich Russians who were flooding England in the 1990s. He said he was returning to Russia and didn't know if he would be back in England in the near future. It was just something for him to do – open a bank account just in case. Well, I robbed a bank and got away with it - and had a good night out!
