Sid James, Lance Percival and Dick Emery star as a gang of unarmed bank robbers. Following a botched getaway, they are caught by the police and sentenced to 15 years manual labour - but not before George 'The Great' Brain stashes the £50,000 haul in the hollow of a tree trunk.
Upon their release they set out to recover the cash, but find that a new town, Oldfield, has been built in the middle of the countryside, and that the hollow tree is now right in the middle of a police station's yard!
