Smash And Grab
Forming a hugely popular screen partnership during the interwar years, dapper comic player Jack Buchanan and musical star Elsie Randolph bring a characteristic elan to this stylish and entertaining crime caper from the late 1930s. Directed by Q Planes' Tim Whelan, Smash And Grab (released in the US as Larceny Street) is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
John Forrest, a private detective with a weakness for model railways, is hired by an insurance company to try to find a gang of smash-and-grab thieves targeting London's most prestigious jewellers. As the chase leads him to Ireland, Forrest finds he needs help - and who better to call upon than his impossibly elegant, highly capable wife, Alice?

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.
