The Lavender Hill Mob
I recently reviewed the classic Ealing comedy The Lavender Hill Mob for Flick Feast:
This Ealing comedy crime caper is quite rightly a much loved and quintessentially English classic. Released in 1951 at a time when old blighty was very much still recovering from the aftermath of the Second World War, Ealing was at the forefront of the British film industry and prided itself on its ability to bring a spot of escapist joy to a nation still haunted by the scars of war. The Lavender Hill Mob delivers this by the bucket load. At the same time that America was dominated by dark and brooding Film Noirs, The Lavender Hill Mob, with its bowler hats, impeccable manners and Bobbies on the beat, represented an inherently British type of light-hearted comedy.
