The handsome Tony Franciosa plays here a lonely safe cracker - and certainly not an armed robber as the title says - who seems enjoying life with a beautiful girl friend. He also works as a mechanic but gets fired by his boss and he has a son. His father - Paul Stewart - who owns a shoe shop; can't help him and the two men argue in a nearly violent talk. It seems laughable to see a safe cracker seeking for a job to get money. But it is. He tries to get rich in playing poker with friends, but doesn't eventually make it. So he gets back in pulling a job. He has an old timer safe cracker too played by Pat O'Brien, and both intend to work together. Franciosa is exquisite here as a man for whom you can only feel some empathy, despite he's an outlaw. Nearly an ordinary citizen. From the beginning, an off voice - a prosecutor's one
explains that the whole story is actually a sort of flash back...You
already think of a court room. It reminds me ANDERSON TAPES.
I recommend this episode. Worth the ride.
