  • 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. The two performers being Alec Guinness and Stanley Holloway present you with the very much non standard robbers who never get violence or anything else involved.

  • 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. The Eiffel tower chase scene still amazes me. Fantasic for a film made in 1951 . Fingers crossed they re-release other Ealing classics onto Blu Ray such as the Titfield Thunderbolt !! .
