Review by anonymous (posted on 12-Mar-2006)

I saw this movie a long time ago and laughed so loud I woke my wife up. This is a great movie and I was hoping to see if it was out on DVD. I didn't remember that Jackie Gleason was in the film, but Edward G Robinson is always great. If you get the chance don't miss this movie, if you have TIVO set it up on your wishlist and autorecord. The movie is original and I think that other movies have come along and stolen the premise AKA (The Ladykillers) both 1960's and Tom Hanks remake
