After yet another smash-and-grab goes wrong, a bungling trio of small-time crooks flash an idea of using a fire engine as a getaway vehicle. But they keep being mistaken for genuine firemen and it starts to become a flaming nuisance.
A British mystery thriller; A story set in the Italian Alps. An actor-turned-soldier is assigned to go undercover in the Alps and keep an eye on a suspicious gang planning to recover gold bullion stolen by the Nazis during the Second World War. The splendid cast deliver spirited performances and the director maintains the mystery and atmosphere capably with location footage that adds to the isolation effect. The soundtrack is a high point. It is tightly scripted, but it is a far-fetched story and unconvincing.
