Man In The Vault

Synopsis: There's $200,000 in a Los Angeles safety-deposit box that mobster Willis Trent would like to have, so he gets two-timing, double-dealing Flo Randall to get the box number for him. He offers locksmith Tommy Dancer $5,000 to make the key but Tommy refuses. Trent threatens to harm Tommy's girl friend, Betty Turner, and Tommy gives in and goes to the bank. In a few nerve-racking minutes, Tommy makes the key and pockets the $200,000 for himself. Trent sends word that he has kidnapped Betty and the ransom is $200,000.
Director(s): Andrew V. McLaglen

no never be blue

as long as

there's someone like you

to love

Just like

a storybook

I got that

happy ending look

The look that means

my love

is here

to stay

Let the chips fall

where they may

I'll never

no never be blue

as long as

there's someone like you

to love


- What?

- I said hello.

Oh, hello.

- Is it getting warm in here, or do I just...

- Earl!

- Betty.

- I wanna talk to you.

- I thought I told you not to come here.

- I can see why.

No, wait a minute, honey.

- This is only business.

- I'm sure it is.

- You don't believe me, do you?

- Well, she said she was sure it was.

- Look, stay out of this.

- Look, I'm only trying to help.

- Well, don't try too hard.

- Earl.

Come here.


- Hello.

- Do I know you?

- No, but I'm willing.

- I could use a drink.


Can I see you a minute?

Excuse us, please.

- I'm Flo Brant.

- Tommy Dancer.

Nice party.

Yeah, it's getting nicer all the time.

Are you a friend of Willis Trent?

- Who?

- The man you came in with.

No, he just brought me here

to do a job for him.

- Get your coat, Flo, we're leaving.

- Already?

There's been a knockout

at the main event at the Legion.


So that's where De Camp is,


I'll get my coat.

How many gals can you handle?

Look, I don't know who you are...

but if you're trying to pick a fight,

you're going about it in the right way.

- Aren't you having a good time, Tommy?

- Oh, a riot.

It couldn't be as bad as all that.

Leave me alone.

Look, I just made $10.

Why don't we grab a cab...

and we can go down

and get something to eat?

Oh, please!

All right, all right. I'm sorry.

I was only trying to help.

I know. "Just don't try too hard."

- I'll see you.

- Wait.

You want a lift?

Which way are you headed?

I wish I knew.
