| Definition of a "shyster" - a person who uses unscrupulous, fraudulent, or deceptive methods in business.
If I had to describe jewellery thief Gerard Graham Dennis in one word that word would have to be "Shyster". Actor David Brian plays a very convincing thief named Gerard Graham Dennis, a womanizer and shyster who will go to great lengths to get his next fix, his next big score. It is a well done film and actor David Brian is so convincing when he enlists one woman after the next to support his career choice, as a jewel thief, and yet he has no scruples whatsoever leaving each woman behind once he has pulled his last caper. I felt truly sorry for each woman who fell for this shyster as I really thought he was being sincere that he loved each of these woman and he was going to turn his life around, but he deceived me as I am sure he deceived most of his film's audience.

There are some suspensful moments and the cops got close to arresting him and then he would slip through their fingers and handcuffs time and time again. I won't give up the ending and spoil it for you, you will have to see it for yourself.

It is worth an 8 out of 10 rating.
