Money Movers (1978)

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Bruce Beresford and starring a cast of fine Australian actors including Bryan Brown, Bud Tingwell, Ed Devereaux and Terrence Donovan, Money Movers is a fast-moving, ultra-violent tale of armed robbery.

The counting-house at Darcey’s Security Services is a veritable fortress, so the theft of $20 million of payroll would be an impossibility – without a little inside help.

The film is loosely based on a 1970 armoured car robbery in Sydney where $587,000 was stolen from a Mayne Nickless armoured van and a 1970 incident where armed robbers impersonated policemen and broke into the offices of Metropolitan Security Services, stealing $280,000.
