Description by OLDIES.com:
Casino dealer Tony Vincenzo knows how to figure the odds, and he figures the job he's planned is close to a sure thing. He knows about the route and the security measures taken to protect an armored car hauling cash from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. He knows no one will find the car after he's detoured it off the road and into a specially constructed subterranean desert vault. And yet he doesn't know enough. Gary Lockwood, Elke Sommer, Lee J. Cobb, Jack Palance and classic caper star Jean Servais (Rififi) are the marquee lights in this tale of a heist as improbable in execution as it is fun to watch. Grab "a thriller equivalent to Leone's Westerns, reworking old formulas and paying tribute to them at the same time" (Adrian Turner, Time Out Film Guide).
Gino (Jean Servais) breaks out of jail and visits his friend Tony (Gary Lockwood) with a plan to rob an armored car. Although both men are motivated by greed, Tony says no to the risky proposition. When Gino is killed by some trigger-happy cops, Tony decides to avenge his death by going ahead with the robbery. Tony, a Vegas blackjack dealer, takes up with Ann (Elke Sommer), the private secretary of Shorsky (Lee J. Cobb), the owner of the armored-car company. With the help of some inside information from Ann, Tony and his henchmen pull off the heist, and the car seems to disappear in the desert. Treasury agent Douglas (Jack Palance) is called in to solve the mystery of the vanishing truck. As he closes in, the gang gets nervous when they can't open up the truck and everyone pulls out their guns in an unbridled display of greed and paranoia.
