The mysterious highwayman, Big Dick Turpin (Sid James), and his band of cut-throats are at large. With his enormous weapon and his cry of “Stand and Deliver” nobody is safe on the highways of England.
Sir Roger Daley, (Bernard Bresslaw), humiliated after being robbed of everything apart from his shoes, vows vengeance against Turpin and puts his top man on the case. However, with an opponent like Captain Desmond Fancey (Kenneth Williams), Turpin doesn’t appear to have too much to worry about.
Captain Fancey and his sidekick, Jock Strapp (Jack Douglas), set out to trap the highwayman by any means necessary. Whether it means hiding in the bushes or spying in men’s conveniences, they leave no stone unturned but it’s a safe bet that nobody will be getting their hands on Dick anytime soon.
