Subject: The Bank Job - A Review
This is a good movie. 

It's based on a true story, a bank robbery sponsored by spooks in Her Majesty's Secret Service, performed by petty thieves led by a temptress.  The gang manages to offend the mob, revolutionaries and politicians during the course of the movie, and the roller coaster plot blends all these elements with dexterity.

I liked it, you probably will too.  I mean, it has Jason Statham in it.  How can you go wrong?

Here's a torrent!

Subject: Actual news article...
I just found a 1971 newspaper with a short Reuters article in it, that references the event portrayed in this movie.

Quote by Reuters 1971:
LONDON (Reuter) --Robbers with walkie-talkies who tunnelled into a branch of Lloyds Bank earlier this month got away with more than $10 million, it was reported Sunday.

The Sunday Telegraph said the haul is expected to be well over this figure when the final count is made and that it would establish a record in the United Kingdom.

Most of the haul was in gold, diamonds and other valuables but it included some cash.
