The Ladykillers

About the movie

Goldthwaith Higginson Dorr III, Ph.D., is a phony professor who's assembled a gang of "experts" for the heist of the century. The thieves: experts in explosions, tunneling, and muscle. The base of operations: the root cellar of an unsuspecting, church-going little old lady named Mrs. Munson. The problem: it quickly becomes evident that Dorr's thieves lack the mental capacity to do the job. When Mrs. Munson stumbles onto their plot and threatens to notify the authorities, the felonious five decide to do her in. After all, how hard can it be to knock off one old lady?
