Crime Unlimited (1935) - full transcript
Frustrated by a seemingly infallible gang of jewel thieves, Scotland Yard arranges to have an undercover agent become part of the gang. Once inside, the agent starts to become attached to a Russian woman who is part of the gang but seems to want to break free of the sordid life she leads. Trying to trap the leader of the gang -- whom no one has ever seen - the police plan goes awry and their agent is put into mortal danger, with his one chance being the Russian woman having told the truth about wanting to break free.
I feel certainly your daughter
will like that one,Madam
They are all so lovely
I get confused
I'm afraid,I'm afraid you're
going to be rather impatient with me
Not at all,Madam
Perhaps,perhaps my daughter had
better come in and select one for herself
Is that convenient?
-Thank you so much
Mason Road,tube station,Southside
I may need more time at tube station
Right you are,Mrs
What a shame?
Look here,something in his hand
Maddick born 1935 AD
Maddick born 1935
That's a big help
Collins wouldn't have died fighting
for it,if it didn't mean something
Of course not,it's means Maddick is a baby
Born this year
You're wasting your time
in Scotland Yard,Hall
Try writing for Punch
Did it all right,you will look after them
I hope you found the
He's on alarm.Why shouldn't he be?
The first policeman murdered in five years
The press are getting
their heads off at him
And over six MPs asking
in the house tonight
why we haven't caught Maddick
To which we shall answer
We'll sign every man possible to the case
We'll keep on making arrest
until the gang is broken up
Arrests? We picked up a dozen
men who had one conviction
You can't hold a man for carrying
a piece of paper in his pocket
Not one of those knows
anything more about it than we do
The only way you'll ever find Maddick
is by slipping a man into his gang
That's a brilliant idea,Hall
Specially after we lost three of
our best informers that way
And now Collins
Does it means it can't be done?
Simply shows that Maddick
or someone probably had
every man in the force for it
What do you suggest? We send a
troop of boy scouts after him?
I got an idea
Send those MPs who is
going to ask the questions
Nobody ever recognize them
Look,there is nothing to stop us
from getting one of the kids
out of the police college
They've never been on duty
and nobody knows them
You can't send boys on a man's errand
I don't know,they are young
but they've been trained
Anyway we still have the problem
how to slip a man into a gang
This time it might be
a good idea not to try
Are you going in for comedy now?
I mean we maybe we could fix it this
time so that Maddick goes after our man
By giving him a reference
from the Yard I suppose
No but if he pulled a job cleverer
than anything Maddick's done
Maddick might invite him in
I wish we could think of something
clever that Maddick hasn't thought of
It ought to be something
along the jewellery line
That's Maddick's long suit
I know a trick,let see how it goes
The crooks find out the name of
a wealthy man,who is out of town
Then they go down to a prominent jewellers
-How do you do
I'm Lord Metcalfe's secretary
Yes,Sir,is something for
yourself or for his Lordship?
Yes,for neither of us
His Lordship wants a wedding
present for a godchild,a bracelet
diamonds you know such thing
Something quite nice
-About how nice?
-I should say about thousand pounds worth
-Of course,Sir,this way,Sir
Send round two or three of these,will
you,so his Lordship can make a selection
I should fancy I think,this one
and this and that
Shall we say around this afternoon?
Yes,anytime this afternoon
Oh,BTW let me have your card,will you
so His Lordship can get on to you
personally in case he doesn't like those
-This is his house
Sign here please
Something from Monnier's for his Lordship
Probably a mistake
Not necessarily,he must
have telephoned from Paris
Hello,is that the Earl of Metcalfe's
residence? This is Monnier's
Oh yes, Monnier's,what Sir?
Oh yes I suspected that
might have been a mistake
We'll send right down for it
And be certain that you give it to
nobody but our representative,Mr Brown
He'll have his card to identify himself
I'm from Monnier's
You have a parcel that was
delivered to Lord Metcalfe by mistake
Oh,yes Sir,they were on
the telephone about that
They said I was
not to give it to anyone
Quite so,Sir,just a moment
I hope everything is quite satisfactory,Sir
Everything is not satisfactory
How can you prove that
you'd given this to me?
If anything happens
Or if you get a receipt when
you're dealing with jewellery
I may be Maddick for all you know
Yes,Sir,thank you Sir
-Do you know how to make them?
Canadian whiskey,you know
I've no doubt to make them in New,New York
-Just got back from New York
Had a great time,you can
have a great time there
Different from London
can't have any fun here
-Now you. What time do you close?
Can't have any fun in London
Depends on what you are looking for,Sir?
Established line, if you like, in New York
That's not impossible in London,Sir
Pretty silly,you know,isn't it?
Staying up all night by yourself
You wouldn't need to be by yourself,Sir
-Well,hell, I've found you
I've been combing London
for a man like you
Now tell me what you were going to say
Well,I won't deny that if I knew you,Sir
I might give you a tip
A tip,eh? All right
You see that
-You know what that is?
Yes,about a guinea,how is that for a tip?
-Are you a member,Sir?
-In perfect standing
American,will you have
a bit of roulette or Chemin de fer?
Start beside the wheel
Send Natasha to me
See the gentlemen there playing the wheel?
The young one?
Yes,that's the one
Usual things when
You don't expect him
to get an interest in my mind,do you?
I don't expect him to get
interested in you at all
Can you see what I mean?
Mesdames et Monsieurs faites vos jeux
Faites vos jeux s'il vous plait
I beg you pardon is that chips yours?
No I don't think so but
But even it should be
won't you play it for me?
I don't seem to have my luck
Numero 20 noir et manque
And that doesn't seem the
royal road to riches,did it?
One can always try
I can't. Not if I want to be
sure of my taxi fare home
As bad as that?
Oh,I could arrange
to pay for a drink besides
Won't you come over
to the bar and let me prove it?
-Thank you I love to
Grand place isn't it?
-Never expected to find one here
Oh,I don't know,gambling underworld
Don't seem like London somehow
I wonder who runs it
I don't know
Tell me,is it fun throwing money away?
Well,I wasn't throwing money away
In fact my dear
My name is Natasha
A nice name
And as Russian as ever was
Will we have to find somebody to
Introduce us properly?
Are you being funny?
Not at all,I mean it
Might be nice to be introduced
Once in a while
Now it's being funny
I work here and this is part of my job
I am silly enough to be pleased
When it doesn't show
Except me to believe that?
Well,I mean you're just a kid aren't you?
What kind of job?
Don't come here again that wheel
is not on the level,nothing here is
With the exception of you
Then what made you warn me
I don't know,I've never done it before
Let's call it my maternal instinct
Oh I see
Look here, if you feel like mothering
me just a little longer
-You can do me a real favour
You know where I can get rid of something?
An object to worth and no questions asked
You want to sell something?
Well,not exactly I want to get
some money for something
And no questions asked?
And no questions asked
You are very logical aren't you?
I work here and so naturally you suppose
that I must know people
who don't ask questions
-No,no not so my dear I just meant that I
-What is this object of worth?
That's not by any chance from Monnier's?
I said no questions asked
-The jokes on me
-Why? What's the matter?
Except that I thought
You were on the level
Well it only proves
That you never can tell
Yes I know somebody for you,wait here
Do you want to see me?
No I didn't know,did I?
Let's have a drink
If you look carefully I
got the hand in my pocket
There's a gun in that hand
I want you to pick your hat and coat
All right,let's get out
I got tired of America so I came home
Then I nabbed those bracelets
and you got one of them
I hid the other two
Anything else you're interested in?
Have you ever heard of Maddick?
I read the papers
-Are you Maddick?
-No but I'm speaking for him
How do you like being
blamed for my Monnier job?
This is Maddick,Borden
I've heard your story I can use you
I am not interested,Maddick,I'm
perfectly happy working by myself
You can't work alone in London
Who is going to stop me?
You'll never pull another job
I don't like competition
And I don't like to be an errand
boy for you or anybody else
Why argue with him,Maddick?
Let's get rid of him
I'll make my own decisions as usual,Delaney
Look her,Maddick,this light
is absolutely ruining my eyes
Why don't we drop this chamber
of horrors,and let's talk it over
That's impossible nobody ever sees me
Well,what do you say?
Well,that's how it is,what can I say
Then straight with me
I'll make you a fortune
Remember,once you are in,
you'll never get out
-Not so simple
Tomorrow morning you'll
get a problem to work out
All matters shall visibly at your disposal
You'll have to make a plan
Consider it a test
Wait a minute,Maddick,
what about my bracelet
That'll be taken care of
Take him to Mala's
Morning sunshine did it ever
occur to you to knock at doors?
-You are new,ain't you?
-Yes I'm new
When you're working for Maddick
you aren't supposed to do anything
what calls for knocking
-You wouldn't be here,if he wasn't
What is this place,headquarters?
No,he has got a dozen houses
like this,for these people
Morning,Delaney,you pay my hotel bill?
I even got your clothes
Come on hurry up,I've got the orders
What is it for?
One of our men in custody is
passing counterfeit notes
Now your job is to figure out
some way of getting him out
What? I admit I'm good but
I never said I was a lawyer
Well,it's all taken care of,for all it is
You mean to say that Maddick
has a solicitor in the gang?
Do you think he is crazy?
How? This is the legal work
perhaps from another level
They've never even heard of Maddick
In other words
I'm supposed to manufacture evidence that
would even convince a solicitor
And a barrister,I'll give his
full name,Tommy Cain
Here is his photographs
Is that his regular job
part of him done with?(?)
No,Tommy is one of the best
safe-cracker in the country
-He is just got it blending the stuff
-Who is the solicitor?
Has Maddick got a
bookmaker working for him?
You tell me his name
and I'll show you a trick
Good morning.What can I do for you?
You can do something for Tommy Cain
Tommy Cain,he is one of your
best clients,isn't he?
Never heard of him
Here is what he looks like
Never saw him before
Maybe Maddick was mistaken
Why didn't you say so in the first place?
What's do you want me to do?
First of all we to act rehearse
than we go round to the solicitors
What is your interest
in this case,Mr Borden?
Well,Tommy Cain is one of my best friends
Then why didn't you bring this
information to my attention before?
Purvis only told me about it last night
I only put two and two together
when I was talking to Pete here
Since the case goes to trial tomorrow
this must be put before counsel at once
Now Mr Purvis
Could you identify the notes you gave
to the prisoner on the day of his arrest?
Well,I couldn't exactly do that,Sir
But I'm sure of two things
One that I took a lot of counterfeit
one pounds notes that day
And the other that I paid
Tommy Cain with 60 of them
Have you ever received counterfeit
notes on the race course before?
Every bookmaker gets them
We work so fast we haven't
got time to examine every note we take
Then if the prisoner says
he received the notes from you
you're prepared to say that it is possible
Now,Mr Purvis,the prosecuting counsel
is bound to ask you this question
When you receive these counterfeit
notes in your bag,what do you do with them?
I take them back to the course
and hope that people that gave them
to me get them back again
In other words you offer these notes
yourself knowing them to be forged
The further comment is,Mr Purvis
on such evidence that you should be
in the dock instead of Cain
Now look here Mr Addison I haven't
got time to testify at the court tomorrow
So if this is just the same to
you I'd sooner let this thing drop
And allow an innocent man
to be punished,Mr Purvis
There is no time for jokes,Purvis
If you'll excuse me,Sir
May I say something?
If a bookmaker find these counterfeit notes
he can write them off as bad debt can't he?
Well,that's what Purvis does
Some day that sense of humour of yours
are going to get you into trouble,Andy
I thought everybody realized
I was only being funny
I wouldn't pass that counterfeit notes
Only by accident,of course,Sir
-I don't think I know your name
Are you a friend of Cain?
I think I ought to remind you there is
such a thing as carrying friendship too far
Manufacturing evidence for instance
I can assure everything
you've heard is true,Sir
It'd better be if you want
me to conduct the defence
Well,I think that's all gentlemen
We can rely on Mr Purvis
curbing his sense of humour
When he gets into the witness box tomorrow
-All right,Sir,I will Sir
-All right,good morning
Now you alter that point
in the, you discussing..
See you later
Wait a minute
I've had my orders too,Borden,
I've got to take you home
You mean to say that you
knew all about this
My instructions were to do as you told me
And see you get back the
moment when it's over
Damned clever this Maddick
Good evening have you a double room to let?
-One that faces this street?
-Yes,will you come in?
It's really accommodate
three with an extra bed
That's not necessary it is
for these two gentlemen
You get the morning sun in these windows
My friend is deaf
You couldn't do better than this boys
All right,we'll take it
Borden's idea worked,Maddick,
they are acquitting Cain this morning
The boy looks promising,I couldn't
have planned it better myself
Clancy,I want Borden on the Mead job
Now take these instructions
To meet a lady in Culver place tonight
She'll be waiting in a black Daimler
invitation to Lady Mead's reception
We are after
The Mead necklace
Not to cause suspicion to fall on me
Is that the lot?
Is that the lot?
Yes,he's left the window
We can't allow him to get
away with the Mead necklace
I know but we'll endanger Borden's
life if we keep grabbing Maddick's plan
I'm perfectly aware of that but since we
have this information,we got to act on it
Possibly lose our chance
of catching Maddick
Now Maddick won't get suspicious if
we follow the plan what I've suggested
In addition we must have someone on
the reception to observe what happens
Well,if you insist
but if we send plain-clothes men
we're bound to show our hand
All you want an observer isn't it?
Anyone can do that
That's it observer,Sybil Cable
What about her?
She writes a society check
column in the Gazette the Observer
She's bound to be there,knows everybody
Would it satisfy you,if we didn't tell
her too much and let her report to us?
Give me the Gazette,Sybil Caden
Oh,hello,Inspector Cardby what fun
I haven't seen you for ages
Miss Caden,will you be going
to Mead reception tonight?
Now I want to ask you to do us a favour
Shall I come around?
Rather I'll wait for you
Which way is Arbony Street?
-Hello,so it's you
-So it is
Well,nothing can be nicer,
I've missed you
Here is the invitation
Can't this wait I'm actually
fed up with business
You know they kept me on the
go ever since the night we met
How do you like your
new business connections?
Not bad,not bad at all
Well,the next gets on with polish
All right,Count and Countess Andrea Messi
-Is that us?
Oh my luck is certainly in,
given a title and married to you
always said he'll make my fortune
The light goes out exactly at 11
you are to stand at the door and see
that no one comes in or goes out
What fun do I use violence?
You use your head
By the time they get the lights on
I'll be gone from then on
your own about getting out
-And the necklace will be gone when you are
Of course we are married
and everything is arranged
Except how to keep out of
jail if anything goes wrong
Why? What's the matter?
I'm sorry I didn't mean to frighten you
I am not frightened
Yes I am frightened
I've got the feeling as if
Some things is going wrong
Oh,keep your chin up
Maddick never missed a gem has he?
I know,I suppose it's only nerves
Of course it is
When did it get you?
You know I can't believe
all this about Maddick
Because somebody must know who he is
What's it to you?
Curiosities go more than ten
Well,that leaves us just about
where we were,doesn't it?
If you quite finished with guessing games
you might be interested to
know about tonight
Our host don't know us but we
are friend of friends of their....
Count and Countess Messi
Buona sera Contessa,siete stato molto ...
Oh dear I've forgotten
the Italian first steps
It is hardly necessary,Lady Mead,
we both speak English
Thanks,my Italian is awful and
Lord Mead's simply doesn't exist
But it is so kind of you to accept
the invitation of a stranger
We are all friends of Princess Rossi
We are really a little
angry with the Princess
she ought to have told us,you know,
that you are coming to London
You must forgive her,we left unexpectedly
You enjoy yourself I'll try and
come and look after you later on
Thank you so much
-Like to dance?
-I'd love to
-We have time
Well we got over the first
hurdle of the night,didn't we?
-Aren't you speaking to be Countess?
You know I'm glad we didn't
met the Fallis while we were away
We'd had complaints from
the tenants about the draft
Now it's your turn you say
It's not drafty
Do you ever take anything seriously?
Oh,yes,dancing for instance
-You dance well
-Thank you Madame
You are not the exactly the
white man's burden on your toe
I'm beginning to feel better now
It's the dancing
Good for the nerves
Mr Conway Addison
What's the matter?
Dance closely,Conway Addison is here
Oh my dear
Does he know you?
Yes I've been in his chambers
for my first assignment
What shall we do?
We don't have to do
anything,keep our eyes open
Miss Sybil Caden
Did you know the Abigail's
other cocktail party tonight
you don't have to worry about
me I know all about you
I am a detective I got to keep my eyes open
He said,so he told me,but it's quite enough
I die for the dear old Scotland Yard
This is terribly important
They are making us looking entirely natural
That is exactly what they
said to me,entirely natural
Aren't you worried about the necklace?
Oh,darling there is nothing to worry about
But promise you'd be careful
Oh,I promise to my sacred heart
Not a word,not a word to a soul,let me
A real burglar
Darling,I do wish you hadn't
gone to the Abigails
So do I,the Gully's people were there.
Awful waste of time
Exciting party,isn't it?
-Well it's going to be exciting
Really? Has Margaret
something up the sleeve?
You are not getting a word out of me
Good Evening,I do not
think I had the pleasure
Isn't your name Borden?
I'm sorry,Sir,Count Messi,my wife
How do you do
My name is Conway Addison,
you must forgive me
but it is the most astonishing likeness
It is I who am sorry we have not met before
-If you'll excuse me,Sir
Well,that's the second hurdle over
Your Italian accent didn't
sound any too convincing
I think it worked
Anyway not long until 11 o'clock
We'll have to separate
Don't leave the room
I'm so sorry,Madame,I was
merely trying to avert of any
Why shouldn't I go out?
-But I really thought
-I don't care what you thought
Perhaps you'd better explain to
Lady Mead,young man
And the suddenly I felt a hand
And the necklace was jerked away
My Lady the lights were fused intentionally
Sasha,that young man
He has something to do with it,I am certain
-Which young man?
Madame is excited,Lady Mead
I was merely trying to
keep the people quiet
You are being ridiculous,Sybil
-Choosing Count Messi
Count Andrea Messi,Madam,at your service
-You? You are Count Andrea Messi?
Oh it's not true I know Andrea Messi
this man is lying,he is not Andrea
You thought he was someone
else too,didn't you?
Yes,I could have sworn he was
Sybil you're excited
be careful what you say
Excited? I am not very excited
that I can't remember my friends
If you are Count Messi where is Eleonora?
There you see he doesn't
even know his wife's name
I came to the police
I am glad you're here
This is terribly embarrassing,
what shall I do?
I wanted to tell you,Herbert
I mistook this gentleman for somebody
else earlier in the evening
You excuse me,Sir,but in
view of the circumstances
I shall have to ask you to
wait until police arrive
Of course,I too am anxious to
have this mistake cleared up
Just a moment,Sir,you won't have to wait
you're quite right,Madam,this man is
someone we've been looking for a long time
I'm from Scotland Yard,come along
Yes,no worry about the necklace,My Lord
We were kind of prepared for this
Woman he came with exited,she is
probably at Bind street by now
-I don't believe him
You know,this is carrying things too far
Oh,yes but I'm sober enough now
If you're from Scotland Yard,where
are your credentials who are you?
I'm Detective Sergeant Jackson
He is not,he is lying,I happen to know
they weren't sending anyone here tonight
Ring up Scotland Yard and see
We are followed Borden
let's go over the window
We separate here,there's
a taxi round the corner
There's one of ours
it will take you home
You mean Maddick was prepared for this?
Why not? You got court order
to ring up Newall at his house 18 York
Don't talk to the cops talk to him
-Newall the solicitor?
All right,all right
Where are my binocular
Where are they?
I'm sure he's mixed up
may have reference to
What's the idea with the gun?
Well I might have been followed
Nervous jumpy by the way
I don't like the way the
things went tonight
You don't like the way
things went tonight
You won't forget Maddick
Of all the misses I ever seen
I thought Maddick never missed
It wasn't his fault the necklace
turned out to be paste
Someone must have tipped them off
Lucky for you to come straight back here
-Where else should I go?
Anyhow the orders are you're to stay
as long as you hear from Maddick
Is she trailed?
What about Natasha,
did she get away all right?
Yes,she got away
So you see gentlemen at one time or another
each of you has appeared as counsel
for members of the Maddick gang
Without knowing it,of course
And in each case you received
instructions from Mr Newall
Many cases in which
convictions seemed certain
where repeatedly upset by
last minute evidence
Now what we want to know is this
Was there anything unprofessional in
the cases Mr Newall brought to you?
Absolutely no as far as I am concerned
That's all there is to say,gentlemen
My practice was failing,I needed money
I accepted the retainer even
though it came anonymously
You mean to tell me you never
knew the man who sent you this money?
Didn't even know his name?
The money was sent to me in cash
Instructions to defend men
who came to me from time to time
And you never suspected
that all those criminals you
defended were members of the Maddick gang?
I told you that apart from seeing
Maddick's name in the newspapers
I know nothing about him
I hate repeating myself,Inspector
If you doubt my words,
you know what steps to take
I take it you stand willing to turn over
to us all your records and payments
Every record in the office if you like
Just show these gentlemen to the
waiting room and then come back
I want you to get some
papers from the files
If it all safe for you I think
it's better we'd stay in here
I find my position quite humiliating enough
without having to make good
my word on the police supervision
So ever if you wish to stay
We'll wait outside
I want the records of every
criminal case we handled this year
You don't think he might
be the old boy himself
But he knows more than he's told us
Is that all?
Well,I wonder how much
longer it's going to be
We'll give him a few minutes more
Seems a fair amount of stuff there
Mr Newall shot himself
Used a silencer
Now what the pickle,the fire
Stay right where you are,nobody must leave
One hundred that's more
than I've ever seen in my life at one time
Maddick never let you down yet,has he?
-Just a minute
Go on,get out
The verdict on Newall is suicide
Just paid off Ben
I'm going to lay a trap for Borden
Why waste time? Nothing ever
went wrong until we took him on
I want to be certain and I
want to find out how he does it
Now take these instructions
Sorry about that Newall death
For a hold up
Oh,the countess come in
I won't be so pleased
to see anyone in my life
-It sounds generous
Partly because I'm bored
but chiefly because it is you
-Don't say you come on business
As a matter of fact I'm taking
a chance coming here
Well,it makes it all better
Have a chair
-And a drink,maybe?
What's going on?
Borden,why did you get into this?
Into the gang
-Why is any man a crook?
-You are not
I've seen enough of you now to know
that my first impression was the right one
Before you showed me the bracelet
There is something wrong about real crooks
You get a feeling about them
Like the feeling you have about snakes
You are not a real criminal
Of course not,I merely work for Maddick
because I'm bored with
my mother the Duchess
Some people get in
because of circumstances
And regret it
I mean,you've been
awfully in search of material
nothing snaky about you my girl
My father refugee,stranded
in London after the revolution
He told me to live when I was..
I was very young
When I got old enough to protest it
was too late because I was in with Maddick
Nice man your father
A weak man
-Is he still with Maddick?
May I ask you where all
this conversation is leading?
Pete,I want to quit this
I wanted to get away
from Maddick for a long time
I couldn't I was afraid
You're the first person I'd ever met
I can count on
Come away before it is too late
We'll help each other,we can
make a go with somewhere else
Not so fast,hadn't you'd better be careful
that sort of talk might be
fatal if it got to Merrick
I know what I'm doing
It won't come to Maddick through you
My heart is an open book I suppose you can
trust me on to death and all that
If that means anything to you
Well,maybe I have a better nature
But how do you propose to bring it out?
I love my work
What were you doing out there?
You know,Maddick is going to be
interested to hear the way you feel about
Don't be a fool,Delaney
I shouldn't tell Maddick something
he already knows
That was a trap born
on Maddick's instructions
As far as I'm concerned you're through it
Hi,Delaney,I'm tired of
having you following me around
And if I report that you interfered with
this assignment,you'll hear from Maddick
Well,it seems to be that,isn't it?
You know I should stay away
from that girl if I was you
Seems to be a sensible
bit of advice,thanks
Now you can do some for me,Delaney
Yeah,I'd like to do,a little favour
You'll do this,tell Maddick I got to see
him at once,it's important,understand?
What do you want to see him about?
That's between Maddick and me
Well,it should be easy,think Maddick
wants to see you when I tell him about this
-Detective Inspector Hall,New Scotland Yard
Mr Hicks, I trust we can
rely on your discretion
We had information,it's going to
be a hold up here this afternoon
-In this case we are going
to protect you without any police here
But inspector,what will I do?
Put your valuables in the safe
Just before 3 o'clock two drunken
men will start a fight in the street
That detects them as our constables
They got orders to protect
you without appearing to
But,why don't you just
put a policeman in here?
That'll tip the gang off that
we got a piece of information
-I understand but
-There's nothing to worry about,Mr Hicks
Carry on just as usual
This is William, a Scotland Yard
man was just here
there until it blows over
All right,Borden,what is it?
Why do we have to go through
all this light business again,Maddick?
-Can't I see you now?
-No,come to the point
Well,if you insist
I'm tired of the way
things been going wrong lately
What do you mean to do about it?
I've got an idea for a big killing
But after what's happened
I'll trust nobody but you
Well,what is it?
I'll tell you it in person,Maddick
I don't see people in person
What is it?
It's the Camden Loan Society
They've got a hundred thousands
in cold cash in a safe a baby could open
How do you know about this?
I've found it before I joined up with you
It is enough to retire on there
if we keep it between ourselves
It sounds interesting,
Borden,I'll look it up
If it is what you say
I'll see you,after the job
That's our man,boys,he's the
one who's been tipping the police
Did you ever send Natasha to test Borden?
She's with him,I caught her yesterday
making him a proposition to abandon us
She said it was on your orders
Well,we can take care of her too
First of all I want to tell you
that Borden is not to be touched
He's the best protection we ever had
I'm going to make him think
I'm taking up this job of his
So he can tip the Yard on it
That'll keep them busy
while we'll pull the biggest stroke
we've ever undertaken and we can't miss
The instructions are as follows
I persuaded Maddick
Camden Loan Society job as planned
to take place
at 4 o'clock
Promises to see me
if it is successful
Maddick promises to see
me if it is successful
So there must be no interference
I am to be at the Loan Society
Office at 4 sharp with the girl
After the job a man will
pick me up in a green car
and take me to unnamed
place to meet Maddick
Well,now,that's what I call getting result
I'll wait until I see Maddick behind bars
That's very promising,very
We must have Borden followed at any cost
Both to protect him and to make
sure of Maddick ,Cardby
You take charge of the arrangements
at the Loan Society Office
Took with me,Clancy
You've met before but you don't know it
Of course,the voice in the dark,sit down
Thanks,we've go to get started
Oh,no,my order said that
Natasha would call for me
That's been changed,you and
I are going together now
Delaney will wait for Natasha
But I hate to leave this
I think I would have won
Don't you worry I'll finish
the game for you
-Oh,I wouldn't trouble
Fertile(?) I assure you
Yes,I believe he would have won
Well,why do we stop here?
Ever hear of the Maharajah of Patulla?
I've seen his name in the papers,why?
We've found he's arrived
in London this morning
At least with half a million
pounds in diamonds
Maddick wants them
What about the Loan Society job?
Next,that's all right
We'll pick that up tomorrow
Well,what do we do?
We are only atmosphere,
Webb does it all
The help with the boys over there
What time is it?
You know Borden,the old man has
taken a quite an interest in you
He liked that Loan Society idea so much
He wants us to talk to
you after we pulled this one
So he says
If everything goes off all right
-Here they come
-Take it easy
Come on,get out of the car
Well,where do we go from here?
We are going to meet Maddick
He got his way to the Withies
That's where I'm taking you
To the Withies,why?
We're going to Maddick there
They are going to meet Maddick
At the Withies
What's the Withies?
Why should Maddick be meeting us?
I don't know
Probably to celebrate catching
a policeman in the gang
Why? Borden of course
Rather good,you were trying to
make him give up the life of crime
That's not true,it can't be
See for yourself,come on
Well,if Borden is a policeman,
why does Maddick let
That will be attended to
Don't worry,I expect you'll see him
in time to kiss him good bye
-Funny isn't it?
Especially,when you remember
you had the final in life with him
After that heavy sob story of yours
Taking him to the Withies?
What's the Withies?
All right keep your eye on that room
and report anything further that happens
Something went wrong
Borden didn't turn up at the
Loan Society nor did the girl
They did? All right,I'll call you back
The Maharajah Patulla's jewels
They hold up the van and got away with it
That's the answer,they used
the Loan Society idea to trick us
Yes and now they are taking Borden
to somewhere called the Withies
to meet Maddick
What's the Withies?
Withies? Withies is a willow
particularly the osier willow
Likely the name of some country house
Well,whatever it is,
we'd got to find it
Don't you see what this means
if they want Borden they'll kill him
Stop him,stop him,he'll get away
-Hear now,what's going on here?
-Never mind now
Notify Scotland Yard,he's going to the
Withies a country house in Sussex,quick
They got to work
Clancy,take him into
the room on the right
Clancy,see if Borden's got a gun
Open the door go into the corridor,
open the first door on your right
For the rest of you,stay where you are
When Natasha comes,let me know
Whichever you prefer
I congratulate you,Borden,you're
the only person who knows my identity
And certainly the only policeman
Tell me,how did you
communicate with the Yard?
You don't expect me
to tell you that,do you?
Yes,I do rather
You see I'm going to kill you,Borden
But I'll wait until
my curiosity is satisfied
Of course if you choose
I don't see to have much choice,do I?
-Know the Withies?
-That old house?-Yes
You've a good eight miles,
Sir,it's hard to find
My deaf man simply read my lips
Very ingenious indeed
If you're Maddick,why did you help
trip me up at the Mead reception?
That was simple I wasn't Maddick
then,I was Conway Addison
I had to act the part
Very thorough,weren't you?
I owe my success to it
Tell me what Maddick born 1935 AD means
Don't you know?
I was going to ask you that?
That's the cleverest clue I ever left
I don't understand it myself
Well,are there any more questions?
Unless you tell me why you came into this?
I was bored,my dear fellow
I grew so tired of defending dull people
accused of crime which was always the same
So I decided,quite logically,
to make life more interesting
By committing exciting crimes
in an exciting way
It was fascinating
Like playing chess with
Of course,you think I'm mad,don't you?
What else can I think?
I prefer to call it
After all,dividing line
is very thin,isn't it?
If it weren't genius
I couldn't kill you when
Or the others in there
With as little compunction
as I'm going to feel
So you are going to kill the others too?
Yes,it suits my plans
I want to retire and I wish
to leave no possible trace
Delaney is here Natasha
has gone to the police
They might be here in a minute
Keep calm and stay where you are
-Where is Borden?
Is he here?
Where is Pete? Where is he?
I wouldn't dream of spoiling the last
few moments of your little romance,old chap
-Go and join her
Oh yes,go ahead
Oh,Pete I'm so glad
Let me,he's going to kill the lot of you
You're lying,trying to get out of it
Borden is right,it's very
This is the only way out for me
However you'll find death painless
All over in a few minutes
We'll be saved the police are on the way
You hear that Addison,
you can't get away with it
Oh,yes I can
I'm in a safe place
There's a chap with me who's been
here since Cromwell was hunting royalists
Nobody ever found him
And nobody will ever find me
-It is gas
I'm going take a chance at you Maddick
-Of course you would
But you won't and it's absolutely
no use you drawing that gun,Clancy
Drawing a gun?
-Clancy,he can see us
-What do you mean?
-Well,that he can't see through walls
-He must be
It's walled in
Here's a trick mirror
Addison,get them out all quick
It's gas,it's gas boys,
come on and get them out
Put them men in that car
I've just thought
My telephone number
Perhaps that was the clue
So that was AD meant
All right,boys,take him away
Oh,Pete,I want to say good bye to you
And tell you I'm glad I was right about you
Whatever happens to me
But there's nothing going to happen to you
Quite with you who made all this possible
I'm sorry,Borden,but she'll
have to go with the rest
I'm going with her and I'll get her on if
it takes the rest of my life
It probably won't
Well,what are you waiting for
