EALING COMEDY FILM SEASON

STARRING: ALEC GUINNESS, STANLEY HOLLOWAY, SIDNEY JAMES AND AUDREY HEPBURN

A meek bank clerk who oversees the shipment of bullion joins with an eccentric neighbour to steal gold bars and smuggle them out of the country as miniature Eiffel Towers. 

Henry Holland (Alec Guinness) is dining with a fellow Briton in a posh restaurant in Rio de Raneiro where he is well known. He relates a story explaining his presence in Rio. It seems he was a seemingly unambitious London bank clerk in charge of gold bullion deliveries for over 20 years. He had a reputation for fussing over details and suspecting all cars he observed following the bullion van, but all in all appeared to be a man dedicated to his job and the gold’s security. In fact, he had hatched the “perfect” plot to steal a load of bullion and retire. The one thing stopping him had been that selling the gold on the black market in Britain was too risky and he was at a loss as to how to smuggle it abroad.
