At a stag party Regan re-encounters well-to-do Raymond Meadows, an ex-criminal who drunkenly admits that his wealth is due to a robbery he once pulled, for which Regan let him go for lack of evidence. Widower Raymond disapproves of his daughter Debbie's boyfriend, flash villain Dougie Owen, and Regan suspects Raymond is using him to get the boy out of the picture. However, Owen plays directly into Regan's - and Raymond's - hands by using Debbie as the innocent pawn in a robbery. Written by

Did You Know?
When Meadows sets off from his house in his Rolls Royce, driven by his chauffeur, we see a shot of the car from behind, about to overtake a bright yellow Daf and a pale blue Austin Maxi. There then follows a 15-second scene in which Meadows asks his chauffeur to buy a present. Following this, we again see the Rolls from behind and it has only just gone past the Daf and the Maxi - insufficient gap has been left between the two shots of the Rolls for the intervening scene inside the car.

Lot rougher nowadays, so they tell me.
