Trivia

During rehearsal for the armored-truck robbery scene, a jeep carrying a camera crane was driving up a hill ahead of the truck when the jeep's brakes failed. It started rolling back down the hill, slammed into something at the bottom of the hill and the driver was thrown out of the vehicle. He died in the hospital a few days later. See more »

Solid cast delivers the goods in this unusual robbery tale. Five men rob an armored car and stash the loot in a gas tanker truck. They then head for Los Angeles for one reason or another. Two ride in the cab, three hide inside the tanker with the loot. Henry Jones plays the gang's mastermind. A very old and corpulent Pat O'Brien is the veteran cop hot on their trail. Harry Bellaver, Larry Storch and Edd Byrnes, all familiar TV faces, are three of the robbers. Quite suspenseful, as the bad guys run into lots of roadblocks and quarrel among themselves. Definitely worth a look. What often hurts early TV shows are outdoor scenes, because of the film stock and sound quality of the time. This one, however, manages to handle its many exterior shots surprisingly well.
