Oliver Reed and Michael Crawford play two brothers who are always trying to find some way to succeed with cleverness rather than simple drudgery. Crawford is constantly living in his brother's shadow as the one who gets caught. After Crawford is forced to resign from the army after an episode of unappreciated cleverness, the two decide their careers would go better if there was a large amount of publicity, so they decide to steal the crown jewels from the tower of London. Bombs, misdirection, disguises and acting allow them to enter the tower with all of the alarms turned off. Written by

This is an excellent movie. I saw it when I was a child, and I enjoyed it immensely. But when I think of the plot of this movie, and another movie involving a robbery that I saw just a few years ago, ...
If I remember correctly, the criminals steal the crown jewels by planting a bomb in the museum where they are kept. Then one criminal impersonates a soldier in a bomb disposal squad and enters the museum after it is closed due to the bomb threat. Next, after the bomb goes off, the other criminal impersonates an ambulance driver who rescues his colleague, stealing the jewels in the process. The robbery of the vault in the remake of "Ocean's 11", where the robbery crew impersonates the SWAT team, is very similar.
