Two Way Stretch (1960)

Convicts Dodger (Peter Sellers), Jelly (David Lodge) and Lennie (Bernard Cribbins), along with fake vicar Soapy Stevens (Wilfrid Hyde-White), come up with a perfect jewel heist.

The idea is that the convicts escape from HM Prison Huntleigh, effect their robbery, then return to the prison on an iron-clad alibi. Unfortunately, tough new warden Sidney Crout (Lionel Jeffries) throws a spanner in the works.

A simple plot is used to maximum effect in this quaint British caper comedy.
