Based on the adventures of Jack Sheppard, the thief and jail-breaker who became a folk hero in 1720s London. Jack is working as an apprentice to a clockmaker when his brother Tom is sentenced to be hanged for theft. To save Tom (who has a wife and children) he goes for help to the brutal 'Thief-taker General' Jonathan Wild. Wild mediates between the government and the criminal underworld, fencing stolen goods and delivering thieves who don't pay him tribute over to the authorities. He assigns Jack a robbery in return for saving Tom from the gallows, but when Jack learns that Tom is instead to be 'transported' to the colonies for a life of hard labour he refuses to cut Wild in on the proceeds. An angry Wild has Jack thrown in Newgate prison, from which he escapes, forming his own criminal outfit with another of Wild's disgruntled associates, Joseph 'Blueskin' Blake. Determined to crush this affront to his authority, Wild uses Jack's mistress Bess to trap him and has him jailed again. ...Written by

Yul Brynner's son , Rock, appears uncredited as a drunkard. The movie was filmed outside of Dublin, and the young Brynner was studying in Trinity College at the time. Whenever his dad would come to visit him, Dublin's press photographers would have a field day. See more »

I saw this movie in Germany while stationed there from 69-72. I found it to be very enjoyable and fun. I have been hoping it would come out on DVD so I could own it. It is a great movie to immerse yourself in a story of the period. It was romantic, adventurous and at times witty. If you are looking for a movie that will create a few hours of escape from your own reality then this is a movie for you. I especially found the ending to be delightful lending to the feeling of a potential sequel giving the character a new adventure in the Americas. As with most of Stanley Baker's movies I thought it was well done even thought it may have been a bit self serving, non-the-less a very enjoyable movie.
