Robbery (1967)

It says a lot about Stanley Baker’s versatility that he could go from Accident (1967) to this ultra hard-boiled fictionalised retelling of the Great Train Robbery without missing a beat.

robbery6His character is the tightly wound leader of the heist gang, an ex-jailbird who will let nothing stand in the way of his planned robbery.

He cajoles, buys off and manipulates those around him while dealing with a suspicious Scotland Yard detective (James Booth) and a disintegrating marriage to Joanna Pettet.
