1972 Ursula Andress
Britt (URSULA ANDRESS) and her husband Lord Nicholas Dorset (DAVID WARNER) are the classic example of live now, pay later-and hopefully never! Luxury is a necessity for the glamorous, desperate couple who live completely beyond their means. Britt asks their bank Manager Mr. Graham (STANLEY BAKER) for a loan so she can visit her ailing mother! And promptly uses the money to buy a snappy sports car and another glamorous outfit! Arriving at her fashionable but dilapidated home, laden with parcels, Britt learns that her husband has gone unexpectedly to Ireland. Furious at being left alone with only Nick's gin-sodden nanny for company, Britt drives to the bank in her new car and takes Mr. Graham for a picnic-dinner in the country.
Mr. Graham equates money with power. He envies his customers their large deposits, and over the years has devised a foolproof plan to rob his own bank! Britt and Nick's desperate financial situation make them ideal accomplices. Mr. Graham attempts to ensure their loyalty by making love to Britt and paying
her husband a retainer.
Each of the three thinks he has the others in his power, but in fact they are all slaVes to their individual lust for money. The whole operation is dependent upon timing. The robbery must take place on Friday-Perfect Friday
Britt and Nick move into what is for them a slum apartment opposite the bank, s0 they can be constantly on the alert for Mr. Graham's signal, and Nick's hair is cut in order to assume the various disguises he will need to wear during the robbery. And Britt puts a large empty box into safe deposit at the bank.
After various false alarms Perfect Friday arrives. Mr. Graham's superior, as is his custom when important golf tournaments are staged, pretends to have the flu, and is absent. This is the chance the unlikely team of bank robbers has been waiting for.
Nick, posing as the bank inspector, arrives at the bank. Carefully following Mr. Graham's instructions, he nonchalantly heads for the vaults. Once there, he turns to his well-rehearsed duties, checking the nearly $1 million reserve, and swiftly transfers the money into Britt's deposit box.
As planned and with perfect timing, Britt arrives at the bank to collect her box which has been in the safe deposit. Five minutes later she drives off to the airport with the box containing the fortune.
Nick, Mr. Graham, and Britt's unknown lover, wait in different parts of the airport for her-and the money! Each is certain she is planning to doublecross the other, but they are uncertain who 1s to be the victim and who the victor. She does not keep them long in doubt!
