| Two crooks set out to rob a stately home, but are enchanted by the owners.
A silly but rather charming comedy about two inept American rooks who hatch a plan to rob an English stately home. they ingratiate themselves with the eccentric peeress who owns the home and her grandson, and while they pretend to be interested in improving their hosts' fortunes wait for their American confederates to arrive. meanwhile, however, they find themselves getting attached to their genial English hosts, and are increasingly reluctant to go through with the plan to rob them.

Edith Evans as the eccentric peeress is entertaining as always, and the rest of the cast are good too, including a very amusing cameo by Hattie Jacques. While it's not a great film, this is very amusing and although the story is far fetched it is satisfying. not a film to watch if you are hoping for great drama or great wit, but if you are satisfied with just some simple laughter and fun this film should please you.
