A dramatization of the Great Train Robbery. While not a 'how to', it is very detail dependent, showing the care and planning that took place to pull it off.

Trivia

It was the realistic car chase through the streets of London in this picture, that led to director Peter Yates doing another car chase in San Francisco a year later. Steve McQueen personally wanted Yates for what turned out to be his highest grossing film Bullitt (1968). See more »

Tightly done, no nonsense caper, Yates style
17 June 2009 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

This movie is well made, with a typical trade mark approach by the crime picture craftsman Peter Yates was. There's no big bang, no unnecessary violence, just the pace that tells the story. This method Yates used successfully in his Hollywood years building up a plot without too much distraction from standard story fillers, which produced great films such as "Bullitt" and "The Friends of Eddie Coyle". In this one Yates gives the audience just enough to paint a picture of a big time robbery, with minimal character development but enough to serve the purpose.

A must see for the fans of this classic director, not great but rather good crime movie that they don't make any more.
