A greedy woman turns in her husband, a jewel thief, for the reward. Her husband's friend, a detective, adopts the couple's child and raises her as his own. Eighteen years later the husband, still in prison, finds out that his ex-wife is now attempting to blackmail their daughter. He vows to break out and put a stop to her once and for all. Written by
Brian Donlevy (Harry) is a jewel thief who has gone soft because he has become a father. He wants to settle down on a farm much to the disgust of his wife and fellow jewel thief Miriam Hopkins (Flo). She has no time for sentimentality and wants to get back on the fags and alcohol now that she is no longer pregnant and wants a slice of some action now that she is no longer confined to a hospital. Phillip Reed (Eddie) is the 3rd member of the jewel gang and he and Miriam double cross Donlevy in his last job before he settles down to his new ridiculously boring life on the farm. Things don't go to plan for Phillip and Miriam and Donlevy warns Hopkins to stay away from his daughter or else. Well, there is an "or else" situation that shows up.....
The cast are all good in this film apart from a terrible William Henry (Paul) as a sappy suitor for the grown up daughter Sharon Douglas (Diane). The story starts off slightly boring with Donlevy being sentimental but things get going once Miriam Hopkins enters and reveals her true character. The honours in this film have to go to Donlevy and Hopkins who keep things ticking along and have genuinely funny moments amidst the plot.
