Overview

A bored parole officer with three parolees concocts a plan to rob millions in paper money that was being returned to the Treasury for destruction.

The most daring heist since the Great Train Robbery...a bored, complacent parole officer concocts the perfect crime. His plan is to rob an express train carrying millions of worn paper money on its way to the Treasury for destruction and replacement. No one loses anything. After all it is only paper on its way to a government furnace.

Without involving himself directly, he enlists the aid of three of his parolees: Colin McCurdy, an ex-marijuana smuggler and pilot who always seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time; Charlie Webb, a small-time fight promoter heavily in debt to loan sharks, but willing to give his all to make the biggest score of his life; and Penny Warren, a gorgeous blond with a thirst for revenge against the system that put her away for six years for a crime she didn't commit.

The Money Burn is based on an actual incident that took place in the early 70s. It is an action-packed thriller with a bizarre cast of characters and a fast-paced plot that includes double-crosses, love among thieves, police chases, a final shoot-out and a surprise ending.

    A High Jinx Train Robbery

    The most daring heist since the Great Train Robbery. A bored, complacent parole officer concocts the perfect crime; a plan to rob an express train carrying millions of worn paper money on its way to the Treasury for destruction and replacement. No one can lose anything. After all it is only paper going into a government furnace. Without involving himself directly, he enlists the aid of three of his parolees; Colin McCurdy, an ex-marijuana smuggler and pilot who always seems to be at the wrong place at the wrong time; Charlie Webb, a small-time fight promoter heavily in debt to loan sharks but willing to give his all to make the biggest score of his life; Penny Warren, a georgeous blond thirsting for revenge against the system that put her away for six years for a crime she didn't commit. The Money Burn is based on an incident that took place in Michigan in the early seventies. It is an action packed thriller with a bizarre cast of characters woven into a fast-paced plot that includes doublecrosses, love among thieves, police chases, a final shoot out and a surprise ending.
