Having pulled off the smallest ever train robbery, Little Walter and his crew decide to get out of London. The six of them set up business in a disused monastery off the Cornish coast, despite the fact that none of them really qualifies as a monk - least of all Walter's moll Bikini. Bit by bit, the quiet way of life starts becoming a habit. Written by

Mildly amusing sub-'Carry On' British comedy of the 1960s
Something to watch whilst having a severe cold and being stuck in the house on a freezing November afternoon. The performers try their best but the plot is so wafer-thin and episodic and the basic comedic premise (of a gang of Cockney crooks holed up in a deserted monastery off the Cornish coast disguised as monks) is so over-used that one's interest soon flags. Interesting only really in order to ascertain how Barbara Windsor is STILL basically putting in the same performance as when this was made and to show anyone under fifty that the 1960s were definitely NOT about innovation and creativity when it came to the production of much of what passed as 'popular culture' in the first half at least of the decade. Watch and forget.
