The Day They Robbed the Bank of England Reviews

  • Mar 15, 2014

    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.
