"One of the most pleasant surprises of the theatrical year."


"That was over twenty years ago. I never got back—never will now. It's like Terry says: I'm just another English Paddy."

The English Crew

a screenplay

Plot Summary:

The only thing Detective Alice Cooper hates more than his name is his salary. But he's come up with a plan to make himself a very wealthy man. He, his partner, two petty crooks, and two starving actors will change from a band of New York small-timers into a ruthless band of English thieves to rob a gangster blind and then disappear without a trace. That's, of course, unless Detectives Pickford and Clover, from Internal Affairs, can cross the blue line and stop Alice and the English Crew first. My Fair Lady meets Reservoir Dogs in this action-packed dark comedy.
