Film details

Synopsis

George Carter goes undercover, posing as a villain and being placed in the same cell with jewel thief Fleet. Fleet accepts and trusts George and when he is released after his trial through lack of evidence he and George go on a drinking spree. However, they are caught and roughed up by another gang, thieves who steal from thieves. It is only by the arrival of the "Sweeney" that they are rescued. Fleet's girlfriend, who is supposed to have the diamonds from the robbery, is actually the mistress of the diamond merchant from whom they were stolen, and the two plan to run off to Amsterdam. Fleet knows nothing of this, and when he cannot find Lynn and discovers her vandalised flat he goes after the men he thinks responsible with a gun, and George in tow. George has trouble when he is recognised as a policeman, but after Fleet helps save him, George returns the favour by getting rid of Fleet's gun just before Regan and the others arrive.
