On the 28th of July in 1951, “The Lavender Hill Mob” opened at the Marble Arch Odeon cinema in London with a charity premiere, and proved to be a critical & box office success.

Whilst initially working on “Pool of London“, the writer T.E.B. Clarke reportedly got the idea for “The Lavender Hill Mob”. The film sees Alec Guinness & Stanley Holloway as members of a criminal gang who plot to steal gold bullion which will be melted down and smuggled abroad. Without giving away too much of the story, the gang end up in Paris where the Eiffel Tower features heavily.

The post-war Ealing comedies tapped into the public mood, presenting tales of the small underdog battling a larger enemy, generally state bureaucracy or established institutions, and whilst the morals of the time couldn’t allow crime or rebellion to go rewarded, for a brief moment, audiences could will on the unlikely heroes.

The film also features Sid James, Meredith Edwards, John Gregson, Alfie Bass, and a brief cameo by Audrey Hepburn before she became an international star. The following year she was cast in “Secret People” which led to her successful screen test for “Roman Holiday“.

“The Lavender Hill Mob” had its charity world premiere at the Marble Arch Odeon cinema in London on the 28th of June 1951.

The film won the BAFTA Award for Best British Film, the Academy Award for Best Story & Screenplay, and Alec Guinness was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar.

Holloway is well-known to many as Eliza Doolittle’s father in “My Fair Lady” where he was reunited with Audrey Hepburn having both appeared in “The Lavender Hill Mob”.
