The Lavender Hill Mob 

The release of a brand new 4K restoration of the beloved British Ealing Studios comedy classic, THE LAVENDER HILL MOB, which will be released in UK cinemas on 29 March. 

Directed by Charles Crichton (A Fish Called Wanda), written by T.E.B. Clarke (winner of the Best Original Screenplay Oscar), and starring Alec Guinness (Kind Hearts & Coronets, The Man in The White Suit), Stanley Holloway (My Fair Lady), Sid James (Carry On films) and Alfie Bass (Alfie), the film tells the enduringly funny story of a nobody bank employee’s ingenious plan to rob the Bank of England and the motley crew that he assembles to carry out the raid. 

The film was extremely popular at the box office on its original release in 1951 and won several awards including the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, the BAFTA Award for Best British Film, and the Best Actor Academy Award nomination for Alec Guinness. 

THE LAVENDER HILL MOB was restored in 4K using a 35mm duplicating positive as the original negative was unavailable. Thanks to the latest film scanning technology and restoration tools, the Studiocanal team were able to achieve a high standard image from the positive that was used. Silver Salt Restoration restored and colour graded the film producing a new 4K DCP, HDR Dolby Vision and HD master.
