    I've wanted to track down the title of a film which featured Alastair Sim, for some time now.

    I don't recall too much about it, except that he played a parsimonious Scottish copper, and was rather funny in a scene where he was dangling upside down & dropped money out of his pocket...old money that is, as it must have been set in maybe the late thirties, or early forties!

    Not much to go on I know!

    Rings a vague bell - might it be one of the INSPECTOR HORNLEIGH films, with Gordon Harker, where AS played the sergeant ???

    Well I just had a quick look and it's neither INSP. HORNLEIGH nor INSP. HORNLEIGH GOES TO IT...

    That does sound vaguely familiar, I was thinking he may be a sergeant, & he did play alongside his superior, who could well be Gordon Harker....Thanks a lot for the information, now I just need to track down the film somewhere.
