The Steel Trap DVD
Diligent, observant and bright assistant bank manager James Osborne (Cotten) knows all the ins and outs of his bank – including a few loopholes wary upper management has missed. Despairing of the suburban treadmill, Osborne seizes on U.S.-Brazil extradition (or lack thereof) to provide his “get out of jail free card.” His daring plan – rob the bank during working hours on Friday and be safely in Brazil by the time the cash is found missing Monday morn. Unfortunately, Osborne’s wife Laurie (Wright) does not applaud his daring as imagined. She leaves him and, in order to get her back, Osborne must now enact an even more daring plan – break back into the bank and return the purloined tender before Monday morning.

Comments about this product:
This thriller is like Hitchcock. The team is Joseph Cotten and Theresa Wright.
Cotten plans his caper well. But, finds out that his bank will not be getting big shipments of cash past next week until next year. So, he is in a big hurry. Get passports and airline tickets, make emergency babysitting arrangements for his daughter.
First, his baby-sitting mother-in-law is late because of car breakdown. Second, his wife could not pick up the passports in time. Third, he must break into the office to fetch his passports. Forth, get to the airport in time. Fifth, they missed their connecting flight to Brazil because of a storm. Sixth, they can not get the next flight because of the waiting list. Seventh, airport security has detected his suitcase contains a huge amount of money. Eighth, his wife demands the truth beyond the lies. Ninth, she leaves for home. Tenth, a life Cotten faces without Wright and child.
Yes, Cotten did break back into the bank and returned the cash. But, will he get away with his misdeed?
