A rogues gallery of the cream of British acting star in Basil Dearden's much-loved crime caper The League of Gentlemen. Jack Hawkins gives a memorable performance as an embittered former army officer, alongside Roger Livesey, Nigel Patrick, Richard Attenborough and Bryan Forbes - who also wrote the BAFTA-nominated screenplay. The film is presented here as a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio. After being 'retired' from the army, an ex-Colonel nurtures a bitter resentment at his country's ingratitude. Luckily for him he's not the only one and he assembles a small group of bankrupt or embittered ex-army officers in a bid to stage an ingenious bank robbery.

TERRIFIC BRITISH CAPER MOVIE

An embittered ex-army colonel ( Jack Hawkins ) assembles a seven man team ( including Richard Attenborough ) of similarly disgruntled former military men to stage a million pound bank robbery, The script by Brian Forbes ( who plays one of the robbers ) is well plotted and full of humour without the film becoming a comedy, How the robbery is organised and executed is ingenious and exciting.The cast is full of excellent character actors from the 1960s. A thoroughly enjoyable crime film which is a must buy for any fan of classic British cinema. The extras on the blu-ray are interesting and informative,
