Crooks Anonymous (Ken Annakin - 1962)

In remembrance of Ken Annakin, I'm reposting this favorite image from one of his funniest films. I wrote about Annakin at length last February, discussing his autobiography and some of his films. I have nothing to add except that as more of his films become available on DVD, there is more to discover about a director who would jump into film projects with the same spirit of adventure as many of his characters. And if that wasn't enough, Annakin introduced a young actress named Julie Christie to the big screen.
