Unworldly Mrs Wilberforce lives with three parrots in a lopsided Victorian villa built over a railway tunnel in Kings Cross. When sinister Professor Marcus rents rooms in her house as a place for his string quintet to practise a Boccherini minuet, little does Mrs. W realise that they are, in reality, a gang of criminals plotting a terrible robbery and that she is a vital part of their plan. The last great Ealing comedy - the blackest and best – its macabre tone emphasised by gothic St Pancras Station looming large over the proceedings.

The distinguished architectural historian Gavin Stamp will introduce the film and take us on a tour of its real London locations.
