    would be grateful if anyone can recognise this film.

    a short[ about one hour] b&w film of i think late 50's possibly very early 60's shown in odeon/rank cinemas.

    a robbery has taken place-i can't remember if bank or payroll or other- but the thieves use a van with a false compartment between the driver and the load space of the van to conceal the ill gotten gains.

    may have been part of a series eg scales of justice but more likely i think a stand alone

    suggestions greatly appreciated. thank you

    There was 'Breakout' (1959) where Hazel Court hires people to break her husband (John Paul) out of jail. To do this they use a food delivery truck with a false compartment in the load space. This film was about an hour in lenth and was made by Independant Artists (who also made 'The Human Jungle' 1963-4) other stars were 'Bergerac' star Terence Alexander and Lee Patterson. This was released to cinemas in England but later turned up as an episode of 'Kraft Mystery Theatrer' on American television
