Now he has not only the cops and the FBI after him, but also the local crime boss, who's outraged that an outsider can pull off a heist like that in his territory and not cut him in on it. Written by
This was a really low budget movie that was directed by Walter Matthau and the only one he directed too. This was the only movie Matthau's wife starred in and her name was Carol Grace. Before this movie Matthau had been only supporting actor in movies like The Indian Fighter and A Face In The Crowd. This is a really short movie at 65 minutes and it's easy to see why he didn't direct another movie. The plot to this movie is pretty simple in which Matthau is a bank robber who works alone and he goes out west. Matthau robs a bank and the cops think he works for the top mobster out here and they blame him. Matthau then falls in love with a librarian, played by Carol Grace, who won't turn him in after she finds out he's wanted.
