Realizing that the security at Brink's headquarters is so loose that he can walk in and out as he pleases, he puts together a crew, including an ex-paratrooper safecracker (Warren Oates) and a money-laundering bar owner (Peter Boyle), and easily robs the Brink's safe of over $1.5 million.

Tony and his boys think they've got it made. But when every cop up to and including J. Edgar Hoover (Sheldon Leonard) gets into the act, they may be about to learn that stealing a million bucks is easy, but getting away with can be murder.
