The Big Job,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sid James Collection (Comic Icons) [DVD] (DVD)
This film,in the carry on style,is great! You've got Sid James as the 'great Brain' behind a robbery that fails and hides the loot in a tree. Dereck Guyler(From Please Sir)as a Police sergeant of a small police station,who is more interested in music than police matters and his inept constable played by Jim Dale. Lance Percival and Dick Emery are perfectly cast as Sid James'sidekicks. On release from Prison the gang set out to recover the loot only to find that the tree is now in the yard of the local police station. What pursues is classic slapstick.
Joan Simms plays the landlady where the gang base themselves as it is perfectly placed opposite the Police Station. Watch out for the 'little Bustard'!
