Forced to participate in a robbery, armored-car guard Joe Craddock (Christopher George) is left holding the bag when the crooks vanish. Fingered by the police as the gang's "inside man" (after all, it was his own company that was robbed), Joe spends the rest of the film trying to clear his name and round up the real bad guys. The Heist originally aired as an ABC "Movie of the Week" on November 29, 1972, easily trouncing its NBC competition -- a lukewarm restaging of The Man Who Came to Dinner, starring Orson Welles -- in the ratings books.
