Storyline

Oliver Reed and Michael Crawford play two brothers who are always trying to find some way to succeed with cleverness rather than simple drudgery. Crawford is constantly living in his brother's shadow as the one who gets caught. After Crawford is forced to resign from the army after an episode of unappreciated cleverness, the two decide their careers would go better if there was a large amount of publicity, so they decide to steal the crown jewels from the tower of London. Bombs, misdirection, disguises and acting allow them to enter the tower with all of the alarms turned off. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Film Industry.....WE NEED THE DVD!!!!
27 June 2008 | by cinders2001See all my reviews

We so need the DVD for this film. I saw someone selling an obvious fake on ebay the other week and reported it. I will not buy a forgery/fake/pirated copy ever. You never know, if we all keep on ranting about this film, then someone in the 'business' may actually take notice!! I remember this film with fondness as my uncle is in it. That's one of the reasons why I want a personal copy of it.! If IMDb get around to looking at my Trivia message I sent them, then hopefully it will be added and everyone can read which part he played and it will be there for all to see! I hope the film people do get this on DVD as i'd be first in the queue to buy it!
