The Great St. Louis Bank Robbery - Colorized by alugha

The Great St. Louis Bank Robbery (also called The St. Louis Bank Robbery, the film title in the opening credits) is a 1959 heist film, directed by Charles Guggenheim and starring Steve McQueen as a college dropout hired to be the getaway driver in a bank robbery. Based on a 1953 bank robbery attempt of Southwest Bank in St. Louis, the film was shot on location in 1958 with some men and women from the St. Louis Police Department, as well as local residents and bank employees, playing the same parts they did in the actual robbery attempt.[1] Steve McQueen was quite unknown when filming began, because he wouldn't get the role of Josh Randall in the TV series Wanted Dead or Alive till some months later. George Fowler (Steve McQueen), a diffident former collegiate football star, is recruited for a bank robbery gang by Gino (David Clarke), the cold-hearted and unstable ex-convict brother of George's estranged flame, Ann (Molly McCarthy). George, initially insisting the limit of his involvement is strictly as get-away driver, is coerced deeper into the plot by John Egan (Crahan Denton), the calculating plot leader. Gino also succeeds in pressuring the reluctant George (George being burdened with responsibility for the expulsion of both Ann and himself from college) to reconnect with Ann to beg for a subsistence stake to tide them over pending the anticipated robbery booty. Tensions of dislike and distrust seethe within the gang. Source -> Wikipedia:
