Excerpt: An old british comedy - that is not nearly close to modern english humor, but still very good. I haven't watched all of the extras, but there's the classic before/after restoration that shows how much work has been done. There also is a presentation of the feature by Scorcese (?). Seriously?!
Excerpt: This film looks fine on bluray (detail obviously better than on previous dvd) A film that charms; screenplay written by ex-bobby (british cop) the crooks are so likeable you hope they would get away with it, but alas the bad guys couldn't win in those days thancks to censorship.
Summary: Though not in the same league as 'Kind Hearts and Coronets' and 'The Ladykillers (1955)', 'The Lavender Hill Mob', due mostly to an excellent script and a truly side-splitting finale, is still a treat.
Summary: This is a bank heist film that never is too serious about itself and succeeds because of that. The story is fairly standard but the characters of the main two robbers and their performances are what makes it good.
Conclusion: Its great to see these classic Ealing comedies making their way onto blu-ray - each has been digitally restored to offer great picture quality. The film is presented in its original aspect ratio of 1:37:1 . This is a great feel good movie , from an era of filmaking sadly lost.
