Strongroom (1962)

Vernon Sewell directs Derren Nesbitt, Colin Gordon and Ann Lynn in this British thriller about three bank robbers who lock the manager and cashier in the safe over a long weekend and realise they must break them out before they suffocate.

Quentin Tarantino loves it. The Radio Times Guide gave it one miserable star. It is a cracking little procedural. Character and atmosphere give way to process and fate. Featuring lead performances from two of The Prisoner’s more memorable Number Twos.
