Get your cockles warming with this Ealing comedy, in which the inhabitants of Pimlico discover an obscure 15th-century charter that makes their manor part of Burgundy. So, in austere postwar London, Stanley Holloway and his neighbours come over all bourgeois, instituting petty little rules, such as customs controls on the tube line. A vintage delight, with none more sparkly than Margaret Rutherford's excitable history professor.

Can Passport to Pimlico predict post-Brexit Britain?

In wake of the historic vote to leave the EU, can we look to the 1949 film for a hint at what's to come?

Barry Norman, Radio Times, 9th July 2016

A sublime Ealing comedy, with an Oscar-winning script by T.E.B. Clarke. Alec Guinness is a lowly bank clerk who teams up with hefty Stanley Holloway to pull off an outrageous bullion robbery. Crichton directs with a deft touch and among the usual suspects are henchmen Alfie Bass and Sid James.
