Imagine a group of eight slightly shady, definitely desperate ex-army officers
getting together. Not for old times' sake, but to use their collective military
talents to take a bank as easily as an enemy stronghold! Jack Hawkins is superb
as the mastermind behind "Operation Golden Fleece," flanked by Richard
Attenborough as the sleazy radio operator and Nigel Patrick as the capable
transport officer. The League of Gentlemen is a slick British thriller
loaded with comedy, suspense, and a fiendishly clever bank robbery. It's only
after the robbery that the plan's fatal flaw appears.
Criterion proudly presents Basil Dearden's The League of Gentlemen in a new letterboxed transfer.
