Armored Car

Another animated GIF from Criss Cross, this one of Burt Lancaster driving the armored car which he will soon play a part in robbing. One of the coolest elements of Criss Cross is the idea of how impossible it is to successfully knock-off an armored car—and cinema comes to real life when you think about the Dunbar Armored robbery back in 1997. The knocking of an armored car is something James Ellroy plays with in the opening of his novel Blood’s a Rover (2009).
