The Good Die Young


Time Out says

Producer Clayton and director Gilbert (the most hard-working of all British post-war film-makers) assembled a top Anglo-American cast for this predictable but not unentertaining thriller (from a novel by Richard Macauley). Psychotic playboy Harvey finds himself short of the readies so he persuades ex-GI Basehart, AWOL Air Force sergeant Ireland and no-hope boxer Baker to join him in holding up a mail van. This being a British picture from the '50s, you don't expect them to get away with it - but neither do you quite anticipate Joan Collins and Gloria Grahame popping up in such low-key supporting roles as they do here.
