Summary
Professor Marcus rents a London flat, telling his landlady that he and his friends are musicians who will be rehearsing in the flat. In reality, neither the professor nor his friends can play a note. He is a criminal mastermind, holding court over his gang of thieves, including the likes of punkish Harry, the homicidal Louis and punch-drunk One-Round. The gang uses the professor's flat as a headquarters, where they conceive a daring 60,000 pound robbery
