One more Danziger's film, the equivalent of Butcher's ones. B thriller made in UK during 50's and 60's. This one is pleasant, a good time waster.
The topic reminds me Richard Fleisher's VIOLENT Saturday. See for yourself: Three men arrive in a small town to pull the local bank heist. And in that purpose, they have to use the shop that stands besides the bank. They have to break the wall which is on the other side of the safe.
In this story you have some characters such as the shop keeper, a former prize fighter who became a cripple and who lost regards for himself. A loser whose the wife suffers too from her husband's problems. You have the bank clerk, a little man who has his own problems too, because he made a professional mistake. A poor guy who is afraid to lose his job.
You see, all this reminds VIOLENT Saturday.
But the film is rather foreseeable. The ending, even a child could
guess it. A really poor ending, too easy. A very bad climax.
One more point: this movie was written by the great Brian Clemens.
