Some of the stars are William Gargan, Carole Landis, John Ireland, Charles Russell, and Don Beddoe. Althought this film was already on this site, those who didn't want to download 4...

The film begins with a scene called "perhaps one of cinema's most innovative opening sequences" by a BBC reviewer.

Lawrence Tierney plays an unreformed, hardened criminal who has just been released from prison. While working at his brother's gas station, he becomes very interested in the armored car that makes regular stops at the bank across the street. If you enjoy heist films, watch this.
