GERALDINE JAMES & GEORGE HARRIS STEAL 'THE SWEENEY: PAY OFF'

Geraldine James and George Harris in THE SWEENEY: Pay Off Year: 1976 Rating: ****1/2

THE SWEENEY episode PAY OFF combines two of the British cop show's two most wielded devices: the woman in need and the band of backstabbing thieves, in which this dame is part of, working at the low-rent casino for, and she meets Dennis Waterman's Carter in what seems just another of many one-night-stands when it's anything but...

Instead, classic-beauty Geraldine James is trying to get some inside information about her possibly dead or perhaps just hiding-out-with-the-stolen-cash ex-partner, member of a violent gang of forest-fleeing thieves wearing creepy animal masks during the boisterous cold open/prologue...

Their identities are soon revealed to be meticulous leader Ken Kitsen and his square-jawed assistant David Ellison while future RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK ship captain George Harris has the most important side-heavy role... 

Weeding-out information from the girl who's taking Carter for a ride that, inside her plush two-story apartment, he doesn't mind having... that results in the same rural wilderness location but with more specific shotgun-blasting, loot-seeking action flanking one of the more noticeably-noirish, pulp-inspired episodes.
