The Ladykillers (Alexander Mackendrick)

The Ladykillers

Alexander Mackendrick

Five hardened criminals prepare for a heist by passing for a string quintet who rent rooms from a sweet old lady. An amiably amoral comedy and the last film shot in England by the underrated Mackendrick. With Alec Guinness in the lead role.
