To celebrate the 65th anniversary of Ealing Studios’ The Ladykillers, the 1955 black comedy has been restored in stunning 4k, showcasing director Alexander Mackendrick’s vision in its full glory.
Ealing Studios’ output from the 1940s and the 1950s helped define what was arguably the golden age for British cinema, and with iconic performances from Alec Guinness, Peter Sellers and Herbert Lom, The Ladykillers is quintessential Ealing.
Director Alexander Mackendrick’s film centres on a criminal gang planning their next job, who find themselves boarding with an innocent old lady who thinks they are musicians.
When the gang set out to kill Mrs. Wilberforce, they run into one problem after another, and get what they deserve.
Mackendrick’s last film as director before his move to Hollywood, The Ladykillers remains one of the best British comedies ever made.
