    Remaking a killing: The Ladykillers

    Widely considered to be the last of the great Ealing comedies, The Ladykillers already holds a special place in any film-lovers' collection.

    But delve a little deeper and this masterpiece soon reveals why it deserves to feature more prominently in cinema’s history books.
    Many of those reasons become abundantly clear following Studiocanal’s new remastering of this deliciously dark post-war comedy.
    For this is a classic film, to use the time-honoured phrase, in glorious Technicolor.
