Film Description

The usually kittenish Jayne Mansfield plays against type as a female crook in this stark British crime drama of greed and betrayal. Tough-as-nails Billy (Mansfield) leads a gang of thieves in London with the help of her partner Kristy. In the wake of a botched robbery, Billy's lover Jim (Anthony Quayle) is caught and sent to prison - but not before hiding the stolen loot, which the ruthless gang will do anything to recover.
