Rotten To The Core
A riotously funny crime caper in the classic tradition of Two-Way Stretch and The Lavender Hill Mob, Rotten To The Core boasts a top-notch cast with early roles for Anton Rodgers and Charlotte Rampling; produced, directed and co-scripted by the legendary Boulting Brothers, this rare comedy gem earned a BAFTA Award nomination in 1966 for art director Alex Vetchinsky.
Rotten To The Core is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
Lenny, Jelly and Scapa are the three loyal henchmen of "The Duke". After 18 months in jail they are eager to rejoin their leader... and even more eager to receive a share of the stash that sent them there. Having been told that the Duke has died and all the money was spent on hospital bills, the they eventually meet up with their boss again; however, they find that his methods have become far more sophisticated, and before long they're involved in an elaborate plan to carry out a daringly audacious heist.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
