Avengers Cast

Frank Preston is released from prison after serving a long prison sentence for robbery. He heads directly for his stolen loot, which he previously hid in a sewer, but before he is can get to it, he is confronted by thugs, who beat him up in an attempt to discover the location of the money. Doctor Keel treats Preston for his wounds, but the thugs then assume that Keel knows the whereabouts of the money and so kidnap his assistant Carol. After Preston escapes from hospital, he finds out that his wife, Stella, is involved with the thugs; he then returns to the hospital and forces Keel to help him retrieve the loot. When Preston and Keel arrive at the Sewer, the thugs corner them - luckily, they in turn have been followed by Steed and the police.
