New Restoration

(1955, Alexander Mackendrick) After the swag from their payroll robbery goes flying through the parlor, buck-toothed Alec Guinness and his “string quartet” — including a young Peter Sellers — decides it’s time to silence sweet little landlady Katie Johnson. Perhaps the peak of Ealing comedy — and its swan song. From the director of Sweet Smell of Success! Approx. 97 min. DCP.

Reviews

“A grotesque fantasy of murder... extravagantly funny.”
– Pauline Kael
