Description by OLDIES.com:
"We've got a bit of business," says London East End crime boss Vic Dakin. Extortion, protection -- those are Dakin's rackets. But he's heard of a new job, and it'll be a big payday if he pulls it off. Dakin and his crew plan to heist a factory payroll transported in an unarmored car.
Richard Burton stars as Dakin, devoted to his ailing Ma, relentless in the fear he inflicts throughout his turf and engaged in a violent sexual relationship with a henchman (Ian McShane). When the payroll heist goes bloodily awry, Dakin attempts to hide his involvement and regain the loot that was left with a gang member. But his tactics of fear and brutality may no longer be working. Because someone else has a bit of business in the East End: law officer Bob Matthews (Nigel Davenport) is closing in on Dakin.
