Dedicated staff, led by the butler Claude Fitzwilliam, attempts to keep up appearances for their employer, Miss Vicki.  By misdirecting deliveries and swindling patrons in bars, the staff has been able to keep Miss Vicki comfortable.  Miss Vicki comes up with the idea of writing a dictionary for dopes and hires a secretary to help with the task.  Soon the secretary realizes that something is afoot and attempts to stop the mischief.  The staff decides on one final job, big enough to keep Miss Vicki comfortable for life – they will rob Gimbels Department Store on Christmas Eve.

We’re no Angels: stars Humphrey Bogart, Peter Ustinov, Aldo Ray.
