This fast-paced, crime story about a caper gone awry is directed by Rilla Wolf and stars Terence Morgan as Dominic, a petty crook with minor crimes on his agenda until he sees a chance for a big haul. Dominic’s associates include tough guy Pready (Joan Crawford) and Edward (Dennis Price), a crooked gambling boss who Dominic helps by introducing innocent victims into his con game. One day Dominic hooks up with Fina (Yoko Tani) the naive daughter of an ambassador who just happens to let slip that a whole lot of cash is stashed away in their embassy’s safe. Dominic’s charms work wonders, and before long Fina agrees to help in a robbery of the embassy’s holdings. At that point, careful planning and a good safecracker (William Hartnell) make it seem like everything will go off without a hitch.
