Ladies Who Do1963

  • 3.9
Whilst financier James Ryder (Harry H. Corbett) discusses a potential takeover deal, he is unaware that Mrs. Cragg (Peggy Mount) is busy polishing the floor beneath his desk. After Ryder leaves, Mrs. Cragg retrieves an unsmoked cigar from the wastepaper bin, wraps it in a crumpled telegram and takes it for her next cleaning agent, Colonel Whitforth (Robert Morley). The Colonel gladly accepts the cigar, but is even more excited by the contents of the telegram, which allows them to make a cool £5,000 on the stock market. However, Mrs. Cragg feels uncomfortable with her easy gains and visits Mr. Ryder's office in order to give him the money back. When she finds out that the city financiers want to use her street for development, Mrs. Cragg decides that they have to be stopped. With the help of her fellow cleaners, Mrs. Merryweather (Dandy Nichols), Mrs. Higgins (Miriam Karlin) and Emily Parish (Avril Elgar), the ladies who do take on the city gents at their own game.

Loved this movie! If you like the Ealing comedies, this is definitely one for you to watch. Of all the movies I have seen on Fandor - this is my absolute favorite discovery!

Loved it. full of sidesplitting humor. A real cheerier-upper

Very enjoyable light English comedy. Character actors very enjoyable. Light-hearted plot which you can read about on Fandor. Trends from wit to silliness towards the end, but still a lot of fun. Recommended.
