A Prize of Arms

#1
I haven't seen this film for years, but it's an absolute classic. Anyone else know it, or indeed any other forgotten gems of the period (1950s-60s)? I love the old black and white films.

The film is set against a background of a Suez type military action. The main protagonists including Tom Bell of later Prime Suspect fame, decide this would be a perfect time to rob an army camp where there is lots of cash for the deployment and an overall atmosphere of confusion.

The plan is well thought out and feasible but, inevitably small things start to go wrong. The film is quite gripping and the whole business is resolved in a more than competent fashion.
