Good gripping film with one of my favourite actors (Attenborough) and some other familiar faces, such as Derek Farr, Maurice Denham and Kynaston Reeves.

A must see, if it comes up on the box.

Today - 12.00 noon on London Live - Terry Thomas and George Cole are both superb in Too Many Crooks

Thursday 9.45pm on London Live - Ep 2 of Series 1 of Stella Street which started last week, although you'd miss both of these if you didn't open this thread as for some reason London Live isn't listed in the otherwise excellent schedule here. Eh? Hmm...

.....................Terry Thomas and George Cole are both superb in Too Many Crooks

They are!! When they kidnap T-T and useless gang leader "Mr X" (George Cole) interrogates him is absolutely hysterical and has me in tears of laughter every time I watch it!!

Sorry for sort of spoiler, but this bit is sooooooooooo funny between them, and anyway, it's much, much funnier in the film.
