Low Budget British Crime Film
6 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A very modest little movie set at a busy automobile dealership. William Hartnell plays a tough gangster working on the outside who initiates a plan to rob the garage. Tom Drake plays the honest hardworking manager of the business. Two employees on the inside are working with Hartnell. The robbery should come off without any problem but both crooks are distracted by another employee, played by Shirley Eaton.

Eaton in her prime is very effective as the sexy worker gathering everyone's attention. She wears tight sweaters and she has the ability to turn many heads. She dates her unscrupulous co-workers but slowly starts to prefer the solid Drake. Alas, one of the criminals murders his partner and frames Drake for the crime. The crooks plan falls apart when he includes the unwilling Eaton in his getaway scheme.
