This dry comedy by the famed Ealing Studios, which won the Academy Award that is now known as Best Original Screenplay, addressed post-war societal concerns with clever, farcical antics. Alec Guinness plays a mild-mannered bank clerk who befriends a similarly down-and-out souvenir maker (Stanley Holloway), and the two of them scheme to melt gold bullions into toy Eiffel Towers and sneak them into France. They hire a pair of lowlife crooks to aid in their plot, which unfurls to often-hilarious results.

This adaptation of Joyce Cary’s novel, which is considered to be one of the most evocative movies about a painter ever made, stars Alec Guinness as an eccentric, penniless artist who is obsessed with achieving perfection, much to the dismay of the other people in his life—particularly those who own the walls on which he attempts his murals. Sharp writing (by Guinness), bold Technicolor photography, and occasional slapstick humor make this is a lively portrait of an artist.
