Storyline

Two toy manufacturers fight over market shares. One of them is Jim King whose accountant gives him some precarious ideas on how to avoid paying taxes. King is also after his rival's daughter - and her money. An array of gadgets almost steals the show: miniature submarines and helicopters, egg guns and boomerangs. The last 14 minutes are shot in colour, as seen by a gangster waking up to his first sober morning in years. Written by Markku Kuoppamäki
