The Ladykillers

Not as hilarious as I remembered. Reasonably hilarious. All the characters , with the exception of "Missus Lopsided" and "Professor Marcus" come off much in the dinner theater mold. Very good dinner theater but they don't quite click. Alec Guinness isn't immune from this directorial effect but soldiers through to good results. Katie Johnson, however, seems to exist in a separate directorial realm of utter plausibility.
