The League Of Gentlemen
A bunch of ex-military types led by gruff Jack Hawkins plan a daring heist. Peerless stuff from Basil Dearden, working from a script by Bryan Forbes adapting the novel by John Boland, with a great cast rounded out by Roger Livesey, Dickie Attenborough, Nigel Patrick, Kieron Moore, Terence Alexander, Norman Bird and Forbes himself.
The Blue Lamp
More Basil Dearden, with antisocial young hoodlum Dirk Bogarde going on the lam in post-war Paddington after a robbery goes wrong and kindly beat copper George Dixon (yes, he) (Jack Warner) ends up cold on a slab. Weaves together kitchen sink drama, film noir and police procedural in a very satisfying bundle.
