Highly enjoyable comedy in which we hear the story of Henry Holland (Alec Guinness), who is hosting a party (of which a gorgeous young woman played by Audrey Hepburn is in attendance) and telling of how he got his riches. A former transporter of gold bullions, Henry decides that the wants a reward, so he, his associate Alfred (Stanley Holloway), and several others decide to transport the gold as miniature replicas of Eiffel Towers and steal them in the process. It works and escape scheme is hatched when Henry is made to look like a victim of the ordeal. It is believed he and the others get away with this alleged mastery crime, only to have it blow up his face by the end. Very amusing movie from start to finish, with wonderful performances by both Holloway and Guinness. One of three popular comedies between 1949 and 1955 starring Guinness (the other two being "Kind Hearts and Coronets" and "The Ladykillers") and it is nice to see that all of these films are splendid and have not dated badly one bit.
