George Fowler (Steve McQueen) wants to go back to college, but to pay his way he has decided to throw in with a gang and rob a bank. For George Fowler this gig is a one time deal, for his ex-girlfriend its a one way ticket to hell. The girl in question Ann (Molly McCarthy) goes nuts and writes a message of the robbery on the bank window. The Saint Louis Bank Robbery is good film noir based on a true story. Filmed on location in St. Louis the movie has a documentary feel to it. The story of course is made up but the bank robbery is very close to the truth even using a real cop who shot one of the bandits. The Saint Louis Bank Robbery, planned like goes off like a time bomb!★★★
