I enjoyed watching this watching this easy going comedy with Helen Mirren, and Jim Broadbent playing the main leads.

Does anyone remember this theft in 1961, when they were young?

I was doing A Level Art in 1961 so was very interested in the theft, also remember them planting the painting in Dr No!

I loved the film. Jim Broadbent is so good in everything he does.

It's a film about the theft of a Goya portrait of The Duke of Wellingon from a London art gallery.

The National Gallery. I remember it vaguely.
