Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.

Episode 071 – A Prize Of Arms (1962)

Our latest episode with Scott, Steven and special guest, Antony Rotunno of the Glass Onion: On John Lennon podcast, features a criminally underseen crime heist drama starring Stanley Baker – A Prize Of Arms (1962)


Never in the history of crime was so much taken from so many by so few... A gang of criminals acquire an old army truck and try to pass themselves off as military policemen. Their plan is to steal a £250,000 payroll intended for soldiers in the Middle East. Turpin (Stanley Baker) recruits Fenner (Tom Bell) and Swavek (Helmut Schmid) to make up a crack assault team. As the duty guard at the camp raises the barrier, Turpin knows there can be no turning back. His desperate gamble for riches will now be played out to its shattering climax...
