The Shakedown ★★★★

I made a mistake when I ordered this film, I meant to get Shakedown (1950) but it was a jolly good mistake to make because this was rather good. Augie (Terence Morgan) has just been released from prison and is looking for new ways to make money. He comes across a photographer (Donald Pleasence) who has hit hard times, and sets him up to be the 'legal' front for various criminal activities. The police are on Augie's tail though...
This is a great British gangster film, very enjoyable.
