|Andre Morell and Peter Cushing|
It is a combination bank-heist story and reworking of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
Peter Cushing plays a stiff-necked manager of a neighborhood bank branch who is blackmailed into helping a suave thief rob his own bank. Andre Morell plays the thief.
This little, 89-minute film has a small cast and most of the action takes place in the cramped spaces of the bank.
It is well worth seeing – if it can be found.
