SYNOPSIS

A hilarious caper comedy, The Lavender Hill Mob features Alec Guinness in this Ealing Studios classic with Audrey Hepburn in an early screen appearance.

‘After years of servitude and drudgery, Henry Holland (played by Alec Guinness, who was Oscar-nominated for his performance) turns against his employer and hooks up with a pair of career criminals to execute a spectacular gold heist, devising the perfect robbery: smuggling £1 million in gold bullion out of England and across to France in the shape of Eiffel Tower paperweights.’ Home Cinema, Manchester
