Harry Hawkwood is the son of ‘Pa’ Hawkwood, one of England’s greatest crooks, and it’s Harry’s ambition to follow in father’s footsteps and be as good as Dad. Alas! Harry has a kind heart, and it is only out of respect for the old man that his father’s gang tolerates him. When the gang decides to go for the Maddox jewels, and Harry is given the job of ‘inside man’, will his good nature get the better of him once again?

The British Film
The British Film collection was launched by Network Distributing in April 2013 as part of a five-year plan to release over 450 vintage British films through a deal with Studiocanal, one of Europe’s leading distribution and production companies. Many of the films have never been available to own and will benefit from new transfers, affirming Network Distributing’s commitment to classic British cinema.
Titles include significant works from studios including Associated Talking Pictures, Ealing Studios, London Films, British Lion, Associated British Picture Corporation and EMI from the Studiocanal archive.
