The Lavender Hill Mob

One of the most famous of the 1950s Ealing comedies. An unassuming bank clerk, in charge of gold bullion deliveries for almost 20 years, hatches a plot to steal a consignment.

His plan comes to fruition when a lodger who owns a small foundry making Eiffel Tower paperweights arrives at his digs.
