5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Black Comedy, 6 Oct. 2010
This review is from: The Ladykillers [DVD] (DVD)
This is probably the best Ealing comedy ever made. A great black comedy, its the story about a gang of crooks whose elderly landlady accidently discovers their responsibility for a robbery. One by one the crooks attempt - and fail to bump her off. All the cast are superb, especially Alec Guinness and Herbert Lom, as two of the crooks who bicker between themselves throughout the movie. Forget the inferior Tom Hanks remake, this is the original and best.

P.S. I cannot comment on the picture quality on this copy of the movie, as I bought the other Studio Canal copy of this on the "Ealing Comedy DVD Collection" which also features "Kind Hearts And Coronets" "The Lavender Hill Mob" and "The Man In The White Suit". An animated picture of Alec Guinness features on the cover of the box, picture quality on all four films is very good.
