The League of Gentlemen
Bitter about being forced to retire, a colonel (wittily embodied by Jack Hawkins) ropes a cadre of former British army men into aiding him in a one-million-pound bank robbery—a complex plan that involves infiltrating a military compound. A delightful cast of British all-stars brings to life this precisely calibrated caper, which was hugely popular and influenced countless Hollywood heist films.
