Take 2: The Ladykillers
"The Major has a train to catch."
Our Peter Sellers binge continues with a relatively small role that we used as the perfect excuse to re-watch The Ladykillers.
This is the perfect crime caper.
Things that never fail to get me:
- Banging on the pipes with the hammer
- Alec Guiness’s skulking lead character and his ridiculous false teeth
- When a gaggle of old ladies arrive and everyone has to sing round the piano
- The final gag, which manages to be funny and poetic
An under-watched masterpiece not to be missed.
