Watch The Ladykillers - Alternative Versions.
When film studios are churning out rubbish like 'The Full Monty' and
'American Pie' under the heading of comedy, you have to wonder what sort
brainless morons are filling cinemas with laughter. It is nothing short of
tragic that gargantuan amounts of cash are being expended on useless
blow-outs like Titanic,Star Wars- The Phantom Menace, and just lately, The
Beach. When Ealing Studios ceased production, the cinema world was
very much poorer.
The Ladykillers is undoubtedly one of the finest comedies ever made,
certainly the best Ealing film of them all. Here is a film from the golden
age of British cinema that will forever amuse and entertain. It is easy to
be nostalgic about these old films but they are still held in high regard
for a good reason-they were made by people who knew the art of film
Moreover, they were made at a time when a trip to the cinema was still a
special occasion. So they were made with love and care and with respect
The Ladykillers is unusual for an Ealing comedy, being made in colour. It
would have worked just as well in black and white, possibly even
have watched it in black and white on TV by turning the colour controls
off!) The location shots, which were done around the back of King's Cross
station in London, capture forever something of the old London I used to
know as a child.
I suppose they best description for this film is a comedy of a bank
gone wrong. The ensemble acting is of the highest order; Katie Johnson as
Mrs. Wilberforce just about steals the film from Alec Guinness. The
hilarious script leaves you wanting more, even though a lot of the comedy
based on sight gags; the extended scene when the supposed 'musicians' come
downstairs one by one while the Boccherini Quintet continues playing is
wonderful, as are the moments involving General Gordon the parrot. The
cinematography is beautifully realised and so British.
Having read all of the comments on this film, I was suprised that so many
American film lovers liked this film - British comedy like this doesn't
usually travel well across the water. So a sincere big thank you to all of
you guys over there who commented favourably on The Ladykillers.
I don't think that we will ever see the return of institutions like Ealing
Studios again, so The Ladykillers should be watched, enjoyed and loved by
generations of film lovers to come.
