In order to keep their palatial English home, Nesbitt and daughter Hampshire, a photographer, set up a phony convent in an old priory next to the house. "The Sisters of Vigilance," along with the not-so-bright Culliford, use the so-called convent as a front for a stolen-goods operation. A

Scotland Yard detective comes around to investigate but quickly disappears, so Granger is assigned to the case. Meanwhile the "nuns" decide to expand their operation and bring in Arent, a talented safecracker. Granger talks Hardy, a hotel receptionist, into helping him with the case. Some gold is

stolen from a local bank. The team intends to melt it down so that Morley can smuggle it out of the country. Hardy is caught spying on them, but Granger arrives just as the gold is being poured into vases. Confusion ensues--with Arent getting strangled and Morley drowning in a coffin. Nesbitt

shoots Culliford, and Hampshire is killed when hit by a molten gold-filled crucible. In the melee Hardy tries to help but ends up knocking out Granger. More than the ending is confusing in this film; the story is often muddled by sloppy editing, and there are some gaping holes in its logic. On the

plus side, this film's offbeat black humor works well at times, and there are enough cockeyed characters to hold interest throughout.
