Japanese spies. Safe-cracking felons. Dapper 1930s slacks. It’s like Roger Corman never went away.

Eddie Doyle is a depression-era cat burglar, ‘employed’ by an unsmiling Lieutenant Coburn in a covert war between Japanese spies and the US Government. But has Eddie cracked his last safe? Minimalism is the key to this delicious throwback to American propaganda films, filled with Cormanesque invention.

NOTE After the screening on Thursday, June 17, the cast and crew would like to invite all ticket holder to continue the converstaion at Cabaret Voltaire's Speakeasy, 36-38 Blair Street, Edinburgh from 8-10 p.m. The first lucky guests to arrive in 1930s dress will receive a special Red Machine mystery prize! Please bring your ticket stub to get into the party. Also, there will be special prizes at the Q&A of both screenings.
