We're No Angels.

We're No Angels (Paramount, 1955). Three escaped convicts from Devil's Island may not be the sort of guardian angels you want dropping in for the Christmas holidays--especially if one of them keeps misplacing his pet viper.

Still, shopkeeper Felix Ducotel (Leo G. Carroll) and family soon discover that while Joseph, Albert, and Julius (Humphrey Bogart, Aldo Ray, and Peter Ustinov) are a little rough around the edges, they make much nicer houseguests than evil uncle Andre (Basil Rathbone) and conniving cousin Paul John Baer). Indeed, these charming felons seem to have a knack for making problems disappear in the most timely fashion. ***
