One of Britain’s most notorious criminals will finally be revealed to the world in this documentary about The Great British Train Robbery: A Tale of Two Thieves.
The film interviews Gordon Goody, one of the fifteen men who managed to pull off one of the greatest crimes of the 20th Century.
We are to be transported back to a bygone era with a never-before-seen inside story about the lives of Goody and Ulsterman and how these two men changed each other’s lives.
The identity of Ulsterman has enthralled the world for over 50 years and through energetic editing styles, graphics and an ingeniously composed score, his true identity will be revealed.
Goody was a career thief and his daring exploits were legendary (BBC and Heathrow Airport just to name two), but now he has decided to go fully on the record and reveal all the unknown facts about that fateful night in 1963.
The allusive Ulsterman was a working man and the inside man of the robbery and without him there wouldn’t have been the train robbery that we are all familiar with.
This is not a film about the robbery but instead focuses on the lives of these two men, one who was arrested for the crime and the other who managed to get away with over £2 million.
The Great British Train Robbery will capture the unique characters behind the infamous train robbery and will reveal what Ulsterman spent his money on.
Goody’s story is intercut with the real-time hunt footage for Ulsterman and will feature a high-end dramatic reconstruction of the crime, blended seamlessly with full colour archive footage from the period.
Shot in the style of Michael Caine’s Alfie, this documentary brings to life the swinging sixties and is a story full of improbable twists and turns.
Directed by one of the most sought after British directors in the USA, Chris Long brings to life one of London’s most colourful decades and captures the unique characters of The Great British Train Robbery.
The filmed documentary will be released in cinemas on October 3, 51 years after Goody’s arrest, and will grip you from start to finish.
With over 20 hours of interviews with Gordon Goody, this film will change what you thought you knew about one of the most gripping crimes of the 20th Century.
