M.V. Moorhead Less Hat, Moorhead Cushing, unsurprisingly, is great, and Morell is sensational, in maybe the best role he ever had, as the sinister yet curiously charismatic thief. Dec 27, 2022 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews An excellent blend of a bank heist film, a keenly observed workplace study and a Christmas story.

Bill B Decent bank-heist drama with some light-hearted moments. Cushing, Morell and Vernon are all very good. The ending was a bit convoluted, but otherwise pretty solid. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/06/24 Full Review nick s The ending fell a liitle flat for me, but it was a very engaging ride. A tour de force from the lead actors Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/01/23 Full Review greenbeetle1 Faultless Christmas morality tale, with impeccable performances all round. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/22/22 Full Review tim o Odd little Peter Cushing brit heist film. Interesting set of plot contrivances, with incrementing tension. Not riveting, but an entertaining way to pass 90mins. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Tepid and tedious stage play, boringly directed for the screen, about a mousey bank manager (Cushing) being blackmailed by a very theatrical André Morell just before Christmas. The pace is leaden, the plotting unimaginative, the purpose entirely lost on me. Richard Vernon is oddly cast as a Cockney bank teller in a bad wig. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member After watching this movie, I now have one more non-traditional Christmas story to add to my list of favorite holiday films. The story centers around a robbery in an English suburb bank on December 23rd. The movie features Peter Cushing in the lead role as the nervous bank manager.
