The League of Gentlemen

Bitter about being forced into retirement, a colonel (wittily embodied by Jack Hawkins) ropes a cadre of former British army men into aiding him in a one-million-pound back robbery -a risky, multitiered plan that involves infiltrating a military compound. A delightful case of British all-stars.
Cast: Jack Hawkins, Nigel Patrick, Roger Livesey, Richard Attenborough, Bryan Forbes, Kieron Moore, Robert Coote, Terence Alexander, Norman Bird.

Classic British dry humor and a very clever caper. ~Mike
