Failed singer Marian Washburn confesses she shot her friend, successful singer Susan Caldwell, but her manager Luke Jordan and Detective Fowler doubt her story and cannot establish a reasonable motive.
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

What did I do it for? Money. The money we were saving together, the money I was going to buy that shop with. And look what I got for my trouble - stone deaf in one ear, half blind and only one hand. What sort of a man does that make me?

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.
