A Hard Way to ROB at BANK!
15 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed this B&W film from the 60's and the great acting of Aldo Ray,(Norgate),"Terror Night",'87, who planned a very interesting bank robbery which I thought could never be accomplished. Elizabeth Sellars,(Iris Muldoon),"Jet Storm",'59, gave a great supporting role trying to give aid and good judgment to a bunch of robbers in a back breaking bank robbery! Peter 0'Toole(Captain Fitch," Troy",'04, was an outstanding military officer who had a keen sense of alarm when the gaslights started to dim in the passageways. I never saw bank robbers who took on such a horrible way about robbing a bank, my back was giving me trouble after viewing this picture. If you want to see a very young Peter O'Toole at his best, catch this film on TV sometime!
