As good as any true story and much better than most!

A gripping tale that twists and turns all the way to the closing credits. Two East End chancers get hold of a lump of uranium and stumble through their first amateurish negotiation for its sale....and on to their next amateurish negotiation....until they blag their way on to the movie's entertaining end.
