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>

An Outstanding Example Of British Comedy
6 April 2008 | by chenaultppdSee all my reviews

I must have seen this film in the late sixties-early seventies; I've seen it a couple of times since on late night TV.and the thing that bugs me is: Why oh why is this film not on DVD???

It has literally EVERYTHING! Great performances by two exceedingly fine actors in the lead roles~solid,well formed plot-line,tremendous sense of humor(especially if you like British humor-which I adore)~great pacing:this picture takes off,and rarely takes a breath;Truly one of THE great heist films!!! I loved everything~and I DO Mean EVERYTHING~about this film! But good luck trying to find it!!!! Why this picture is not on DVD is one of the great mysteries of the 21st century. It is an absolute gem;and if you get the opportunity,you could NOT spend two more enthralling hours than to sit and enjoy this with some friends!

I have no idea how you would track this film down but,it's worth the effort,if you can-Outstanding~just Outstanding!!!
