This comedy thriller is the best film to come from Ealing Studios for some time, and the combined talents of William Rose (writer) and Alexander Mackendrick (director) have produced a witty and original diversion.

The architecture of the film - and buildings and angles are an integral part of why it works so well - rests upon the twin pillars of Katie Johnson and Alec Guinness.

As directed in a kind of damp, gray color palette by Alexander Mackendrick the film is one of the richest and most carefully-paced of the Ealing comedies.
April 6, 2006
Director Alexander Mackendrick ... reached a masterful apex of sorts with this wickedly hilarious movie's precise balance of situational comedy and stark murderous callousness.

worthy to see heavily maked-up Guinnes and pre-panther Sellers.

Most of the slapstick set pieces warrant a polite smile rather than a hearty guffaw.
