Robbery
Peter Yates, 1967
UK | 110 minutes

Made a year before the late Peter Yates came to America to direct Bullitt, this rarely seen caper about the Great Train Robbery opens with an extended diamond heist and police pursuit—as thrillingly executed as anything in its more famous follow-up. Less attention-grabbing but just as integral to the film’s success is the director’s facility with actors, here a cast of British regulars (headed up by Stanley Baker, Frank Finlay, and Barry Foster) giving low-key, lived-in performances.
