    Hello all, I am a new member.

    I am hoping that someone out there can help me.

    Many years ago as a child/teenager I watched a black and white film about a bank robbery, the men whilst escaping capture (in their 1950/60s english cars, I seem to remember) drove their vehicle/s into the back of a pantechnican (removals type) lorry, the tailgate was shut up and the lorry drove away. etc etc.

    Can anyone tell me what the film was called please, I know it's a bit vague but you never know.

    I am fairly sure that the film was not 'The Lavender Hill Mob'

    Regards.

    William. IamGoliath

    'Payroll' with Michael Craig? Early 60s, can't remember the exact year.

    Definitely "The League of Gentlemen"; they steal cars and also a lorry, which they lower the tailgate of and drive one of the cars into.

    The extras are worth while and include an excellent commentary from Bryan Forbes and Nanette Newman.
