Framed Documents #407: Sewers Of Gold

Framed Documents #407: Sewers Of Gold

I watched the gripping heist procedural Sewers Of Gold yesterday. It’s also known as The Great Riviera Bank Robbery and Dirty Money.

Directed by Francis Megahy and starring Ian McShane, it’s a curious one, as it’s based on a real plot in which a group of French fascist-linked hoods led by one Albert Spaggiari tunnelled into the Société Générale in Nice and broke into hundreds of safety deposit boxes before making off with the world’s then-largest haul. I found myself rooting for them all the way through.

Anyway, here’s Lovejoy’s attempt at a ‘peace symbol’, looking suspiciously like product placement for Mercedes-Benz.

WITHOUT VIOLENCE

WITHOUT ARMS

WITHOUT HATRED

The raid was previously filmed as Les Egouts De Paradis, and then again in 2008 as Sans Arme, Ni Haine, Ni Violence, which is essentially the motto as above.
