Villain

1971

Michael Tuchner
Director

The gang pull off a payroll heist, things go wrong.

Burton is super as the Kray-ish thug with mummy issues and a good supporting cast of thugs and mugs. Grim.

The US Warner Archive version has been re-dubbed presumably to make the thing easier on the ear to a US audience. Burton seems to have re-voiced himself at least, but no one else, which makes everyone else sound the same. Particularly jarring with Sinden, Welland and Michael Robbins who usually sport distinctive tones.
