The Lavender Hill Mob (#19)

Join the boys for another heist as Brendan and Jason dive into another Ealing Studios comedy with Charles Crichton’s The Lavender Hill Mob. They talk all about Alec Guinness playing against type and his fascinating physical acting, the US market forcing a rewrite of the original ending, Audrey Hepburn making a very early appearance, the shots that may have inspired Vertigo and much, much more!

The guys also roll the dice to find out what they’ll be watching next week. Join us, won’t you?
