The Big Job (1965)
I have been trying to find out about a Black & White film that i watched on TV some years ago. The plot was that some burgulars did a robbery and hid the money in a tree, when they got out they went back to the tree. only to find that a housing estate had been built, and the tree was now situated in the court yard of a police station, so the gang rented a room, of a house owned by a woman (joan simms, i think) accross from the police station. when eventually they manage to get into the police stations court yard to recover the money. they open the satchel only to find that the money was all mushy from years of weathering. Please could someone tell me the name of the Film. I think it stared some of the carry on cast.
The film is called 'The big job' and also starred Sid James Dick Emery Lance Percival Sylvia Syms and Jim Dale as well as Joan Sims as you said. It's a really good film and was shown a while back on Ch.4.
Hope this helps :)
