The League of Gentlemen (1959) Jack Hawkins Cult Classic
Involuntarily-retired Colonel Hyde (Jack Hawkins) recruits seven other dissatisfied ex-servicemen for a special project. Each of the men has a skeleton in the cupboard, is short of money, and is a service-trained expert in his field. The job is a bank robbery, and military discipline and planning are imposed by Hyde and second-in-command Race on the team, although civilian irritations do start getting in the way.
Starring: Jack Hawkins, Nigel Patrick, Richard Attenborough, Roger Livesey
Viewer Quote: "The cast is brilliantly chosen and the plot is inspired. Jack Hawkins, excellent as always, heads a superb cast in this marvelously entertaining look at the moral decay of Britain's upper classes in the post-war period. This is easily one of my top ten movies."
