A sacrilege to miss this one !!!

What a wonderful surprise for me to discover this one. I did not expect so much. I like Monty Tully's films, but not so far. It's ten times better than another picture directed by him that I saw last week : "Strange Awakening". A real sleeper.

I know that the screenwriter for this one is no one else than James Eastwood. It tells the story of a big time operator - Zachary Scott - who escapes in France from a cellular convoy, with dead escort policemen, and then manages a big scale counterfeit money ring from England. All the mechanism, working technique of that "business" is described.

Scott is of course the ideal bad guy, ruthless, fierce, as we expect him to be. Delicious. Peggy Castle plays the daughter of the old man implicated by Scott in his criminal plan. Gorgeous gal...Hmm...Hmm

Good action sequences too in this feature.

Don't miss it. It would be a heresy.
