Three good men - a broken boxer, an American veteran trying to win back his mother-dominated wife, and an Air Force Sergeant married to a faithless actress - are corrupted by Miles "Rave" Ravenscourt (Laurence Harvey), an amoral "gentleman". Because they need money, they let Miles lure them into his scheme to rob a postal van with a large cash cargo.Written by

Todd has become the biggest thing in pictures and he's asked little me to be with him in his next picture.
How exciting. I saw your last picture by the way. Who was the guy you said your line to?
I'm afraid Eddie that your life in the Air Force has coarsened your mind.

What a cast! Basehart, Harvey, Baker, and Ireland turn out stunning performances in this British film noir entry. The story is of three decent men, on hard times that are enticed to robbery by the one bad seed amongst them (Harvey). Also interesting to view Joan Collins in an early role, man she was REALLY hot when she was young. The tale is told in flashback, and younger viewers, more inclined to slash and bang, might find it a bit slow, but the ending is both subtle and surprising. A good one.
