We’re No Angels (1955)

I just saw We’re No Angels for the first time. It was very cute.  I saw it for two reasons 1) It’s a Christmas film 2) I love Joan Bennett.  The film stars Humphrey Bogart, Aldo Ray, and Peter Ustinov with Bennett, Basil Rathbone and Leo G. Carroll.  It’s not a normal Christmas movie since Bogart, Ray, and Ustinov play escaped convicts who bring Christmas joy to a family through theft, lies, forgery, and other crimes. 

Bogart is quite funny and I just read he used to do comedy on stage.  I adored Leo G. Carroll’s character though.  He was so cute and as someone else noted, the film’s real mystery is how did he ever bag such an attractive wife as Joan Bennett.
