    Big Time Operators (1957) - IMDb user reviews

    "The Smallest Show on Earth" was the film I was thinking of - not an Ealing comedy but similar in style - according to one reviewer the script writer also wrote the 'Lady Killers' and it does have Margaret Rutherford and Peter Sellars in supporting roles.

    Anette, the next time you watch the film watch closely as Louis Mazzini is released from prison, when the reporter approaches and asks for an interview you will next time I'm sure recognise that reporter immediately.
    It is not racist to be concerned about immigration.

    Quite right, I have Whisky Galore in a box set of four, the other three are "It always rains on Sunday" "The Maggie" and "Champagne Charlie" I have to say I dont like Champagne Charlie much but the other three are superb.

    Thanks for that, an interesting read. Of course since that article was published Hollywood have indeed committed the ultimate faux pas, I mean Tom Hanks may be good but he is no Alec Guinness.

    Probably my fave Ealing film, or possibly The Titfield Thunderbolt... it's a tough call.

    Along with most on here, Kind Hearts is a true great. One that I also like is The Reluctant Debutante (1958) - IMDb
