Two years later, out of the blue, producer Charles Vance rang me and asked if I would be interested in adapting the old Ealing comedy, The Lavender Hill Mob. Being too nervous to tackle it on my own I engaged the services of two script writer friends of mine. It was a pretty clumsy first attempt, but at least we got it on and made the producer a bit of money.
