Too Many Crooks

Fingers (George Cole) and his gang of criminals (including Sid James and Bernard Bresslaw) have the reputation for being the most dim-witted crooks London has ever seen. Fingers, however, has a plan - to rob tight-fisted, loose-living millionaire and tax dodger Billy Gordon (Terry-Thomas) of his cash. The incompetent gang meet one failure after another and decide to change tack and kidnap Gordon's beloved daughter. This classic Btitish farce also features a marvellous cast of familiar faces including John Le Mesurier, Nicholas Parsons, and Terry Scott.
