    Wonderful. Alec Guiness's physicality is marvelous and the script is tight and funny. Exactly what you'd expect from a classic Ealing film. 7 years 4 months ago

    Like a lot of these Ealing comedies, this manages to be consistently amusing and interesting despite having few laugh-out-loud moments... 8 years 6 months ago

    I just watched it a second time. Quickly becoming a personal favorite. You know it's a good film when you want to start it from the beginning once the credits roll. 7 years 3 months ago
