The film is a humorous romp of a 'gentle' bullion heist where the villains ultimately get away with very little and then get caught. There is as much joy in the film's script as there is in appreciating bomb damaged London and what passed as high tech in 1951.
It is great fun to be sat in a garden chair having a picnic watching a movie outdoors. The sound quality was fantastic as we were all equipped with headphones.
Castle Park House makes an excellent backdrop.
