Great crime story, Peter O'Toole just two years before Lawrence of Arabia made him a star. Engrossing, the title almost says it all.
Suspenseful story of the Irish doing something never done.
"The luck of the Irish" should have been the title.

While Ireland struggles for independence, Charles Norgate (Aldo Ray), an Irish-American, arrives in London after being recruited by Irish revolutionaries to undertake a robbery of the Bank of England."--- wikipedia
