    Default '60s or '70s Prison Escape Film

    Many years ago I saw a film on TV which was made in the late '60s or early '70s. It was about a gang of master criminals who are in prison. They hatch a scheme to break out of prison while the World Cup game is going on and everybody is glued to the TV, break into the Royal Mint, print some money and then sneak back into prison before anybody notices. I can't seem to find any info about it. Has anybody ever seen or heard of this film?

    Hmmm... I've seen "Two Way Stretch" and I know it's not the film I'm thinking about.

    What I remember about the film I'm thinking about was that the characters are all convalescing in the prison infirmary from a variety of feigned complaints. The infirmary is of course under constant surveillance from a CCTV camera. To effect their escape the gang substitutes the live feed with a continuous loop shot on a set resembling the infirmary. Or at least that's what I seem to recall.

    Is it a Mission Impossible episode?

    No, it was a movie made in the late '60s or early '70s.

    I just found it. It is called Seven Times Seven (it is actually an Italian movie)

    That's the sort of idea later used in Speed.
