The casting is unexpected but quite wonderful, with tough guys Humphrey Bogart and Aldo Ray showing their comic sides. Peter Ustinov rounds out the trio of crooks and murderers nicely, with his dry, self-effacing delivery. Leo G. Carroll, Joan Bennett and Basil Rathbone all turn in wonderful performances on the law-abiding side of things.
We're No Angels is a film that never drifts into sappiness or sentimentality. There's always a little edge to the comedy, a little darkness underlying the light, and that makes for delicious viewing. It's a very human and humane comedy for people who don't want their holiday spoiled by too much sugar. One caveat: Do NOT mistake the remake for this film. They're not the same by any stretch.
Where I lived, the local TV station programmer had enough insight to make this a yearly supplement, along with the traditional classics such as 'It's a Wonderful Life' and 'Rudolf'the Red-Nosed Reindeer'.
There's no denying the appeal of this movie, Christmas or otherwise, and there's enough positive praise of the film on this site to merit a DVD release, so PLEASE grant us this Christmas wish!
