Great Movie #12 – Going in Style

Another in a series of overlooked movies…

12. Going in Style  Going in Style This understated 1979 comedy stars George Burns (then 83), Art Carney (then 61) and Lee Strasburg (then 78) as three senior citizens who, out of boredom and lack of money, decide to rob a bank.  Burns’ and Carney’s characters then take the cash to Las Vegas where they grow it at the craps table.  Great ensemble piece. “No tinhorn joint like this could ever hold me.” Watch the trailer.
