Gentle - The Lavender Hill Mob review by JD

Spoiler Alert
08/03/2016

The pace is slow, the plot simple, the photography absolutely stunning. Good black and white such as this give a texture to the picture which I find better than any high definition colour. Alec G is of course great, Sid James plays a very straight character, pre slap stick. It is about a burglary but it is more than the plot and certainly more than the action which by modern standards is poor. A great film for a rainy Saturday.

Clean old fashioned humour - The Lavender Hill Mob review by JJ

Spoiler Alert
01/04/2020

This was my first introduction to The Ealing Comedies and it was a refreshing, simple romp with some great acting from a young Alec Guinness and rotund Stanley Holloway. 

Such straightforward stuff to raise the spirits post WW 2 and now in the thick of a 2020  pandemic.
