Description

    This stunning new restoration of 1955 Ealing comedy THE LADYKILLERS and the first from the original 3 strip Technicolor negative, showcases Alexander Mackendrick's vision in its full glory. Considered by many as the finest British comedy ever made. THE LADYKILLERS follows the hilarious capers of a group of small-time crooks, taking on more than they can handle in the form of their sweet elderly landlord, Mrs. Wilberforce (BAFTA Award winning actress Katie Johnson How To Murder A Rich Uncle). The criminal gang. posing as a string quartet, are unprepared for their land lord's meddling when one of the 'musicians' cases gets caught in a door, revealing the group's true identity.
    Featuring an impressive all-star lineup. With the finest comedy actors of the day: Alec Guinness (Kind Hearts and Coronets, Lavender Hill Mob) plays the gang's mastermind 'Professor Marcus'. Cecil Parker (A French Mistress) is Claude otherwise known as 'Major Courtney', Peter Sellers (I'm Alright Jack) is Harry aka 'Mr. Robinson'. Herbert Lom (The Pink Panther) is Louis aka 'Mr. Harvey' and Danny Green (A Kid For Two Farthings) plays One Round also known as 'Mr. Lawson'.
