Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.

It’s our ‘COVID delayed Christmas episode’….but is it a Christmas movie? Steven says yes, Tony says no, Scott doesn’t care either way as it is cracking movie from 1961 starring Peter Cushing and Andre Morell from the legendary Hammer studios:

Cash On Demand (1961)

“This tense and hugely entertaining heist thriller is a Hammer take on A Christmas Carol, which pits miserly and fastidious bank manager (Peter Cushing in sparkling form) against debonair robber André Morell, as a plot to rob a bank on Christmas Eve unfolds in almost real time.
Reuniting Cushing and Morell, who had just played Holmes and Watson for Hammer in The Hound of the Baskervilles (and co-starred in the BBC's controversial 1954 adaptation of George Orwell's 1984), this ingenious suspenser is now regarded by many as one of Hammer’s best films.”

“I detest brutality. I want bank robberies to be smoother and more sociable.”
