    It's a cliche that I really try to avoid, but in the case of this gentle, British comedy from 1960 there's no getting around it; they just don't make 'em like this anymore. You know that if they made this clueless, caper comedy today there'd have to be some portion of violence or cursing or raunch. (i.e. "A Fish Called Wanda") Not here. That this movie eschews all of that and still manages to make you laugh, pretty much from beginning to end, is testament to the Brits way with comedy, at least in the 1950s and early 60s, and continuing on to Monty Python, a way that combines weirdness, eccentricity, pratfalls, and incompetence, along with a generous amount of sharp one liners, most of them delivered with pinpoint precision by Terry Thomas. Wonderfully aiding Thomas are three hilarious dotty femmes; Athene Sayler, Hattie Jacques, and Elspeth Duxbury (Even their real names are amusing.) There are a couple things that don't work, like the spoof of "Third Man" (spoofs rarely work, in my observation) the love interest subplot with Billie Whitelaw and Jack Hedley, which is on the dull side, and the fact that it's about fifteen minutes too long. But, all in all, this is a film to unwind and relax with. Give it a B plus. P.S. Only a British comedy from 1960 would have a gang of thieves composed of one funny looking, middle aged guy, two middle aged gals with zero sex appeal, and one old lady, and get away with it.

    Mediocre film that is of interest for a fine performance from an actress I've never heard of named Aline McMahon, portraying a woman with a fascinating combination of hardness and affection toward her husband (a too shrill and over the top Edward G. Robinson) and for being what I'm sure is the only film to feature perhaps our most obscure president, Chester A. Arthur, (portrayed as a stuffed shirt, natch) Otherwise, this is a draggingly slow film with way too much to say about the gold standard vs. bimetalism. I guess, if you're really into William Jennings Bryan, you'll like this banana slug of a movie, but for the rest of us it's a solid C.
