Alec Guinness in
THE LAVENDER HILL MOB

Monday, December 2
2:40   6:20

(1951, Charles Crichton) Seedy hustler Stanley Holloway gets the gist of fastidious bank clerk Alec Guinness’ scheme: conceal gold bullion in tacky Eiffel Tower souvenirs. Smash hit Ealing comedy won an Oscar for scripter T.E.B. Clarke and a Best Actor nomination for Guinness. DCP. Approx. 78 min.

Reviews

“Inventive, economic, masterly… one of the most glorious gems in the Ealing crown.”
– Phillip French, The Observer

“One of the most perfect character comedies ever devised, and one which fully justified its Academy Award… This is a film so sure of itself as to delight for that reason alone: there is hardly a cut or dissolve or an angle which does not serve the purpose of making you laugh. Or rather, smile.”
– Leslie Halliwell
