Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.
This week, Scott and Steven are joined by Tyler from the wonderful Goon Pod - a podcast celebrating the legendary Goon Show and the Goons themselves - Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe, Spike Milligan (and Michael Bentine). Each episode host Tyler welcomes a guest to examine an actual Goon Show, a solo Goon project (films, TV, radio, books, albums etc) or practically anything within the Goon universe. Scott was a guest recently on Goon Pod and asked Tyler to join us to chat about one of his favourite movies, Robbery starring Stanley Baker
Based on the infamous "Great Train Robbery," this film follows Paul Clifton (Stanley Baker) as he forms a team to carry out an ambitious heist of cash from a government mail train traveling from Scotland to London. Clifton feels it necessary to add incarcerated money expert Robinson (Frank Finlay) to the group, so he organizes a jailbreak to free him as well. Although the theft succeeds, the criminals are still hounded by Scotland Yard detective Langdon (James Booth).
“We're talking about millions of pounds now. We're talking about road blocks, car searches, house raids, shakedowns. They'll know who pulled the job. Without the money, they can't prove anything.”
