A great British comedy with Alec Guinness and Stanley Holloway as a pair of inexperienced and most unlikely crooks who steal an armored car full of gold, melt it down and then cast it into hundreds of models of the Eiffel Tower. A comic genius, Guinness is a master of stillness and reserve. Years after this film, director Charles Crichton made “A Fish Called Wanda.”
DIRECTOR: Charles Crichton
