The Lavender Hill Mob
Holland, a man dreaming of fame and fortune, is nearing his retirement after twenty years as a bank transfer agent for the delivery of gold bullion. One day, he befriends his neighbor Pendlebury, a maker of souvenirs. Holland notice that, with Pendlebury's smelting equipment, one could forge the gold into harmless-looking toy Eiffel Towers and smuggle the gold from England into France. Soon enough, the two find themselves embroiled in a life of crime, and together, the two of them must complete the con or die trying. Bafta Award for Best British Film. Starring Alec Guiness and Stanley Holloway.
