For what has become his final feature film, director Roger Michell made this sweet-natured and genial comedy in the spirit of Ealing, which bobs up like a ping pong ball on a water- fountain. It is based on the true story of Kempton Bunton, the Newcastle cab driver who in 1965 appeared at the Old Bailey for stealing Goya's portrait of the Duke of Wellington from London's National Gallery, and stars Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren. The mystery of its disappearance had so electrified the media that there was even a gag about it in the James Bond film Dr No.
