Crooks plan a bank heist by digging through the basement of a neighbouring bombed-out house

This tightly plotted and suspenseful crime drama features one scene in a snowy Shepherd’s Bush market with a Metropolitan Line train of CO stock passing over the viaduct on the left. This is of particular note because the film was shot during the notorious ‘Big Freeze of 1963’ which crippled much of Britain’s road and rail network and not much would have been running.
