Going in Style, a comedic story about a trio of old-timers who set out to rob a bank, hit theaters in December of 1979. The film, written and directed by Martin Brest, stars George Burns (Joe), Lee Strasberg (Willie) and Art Carney (Al).

Going in Style is an entertaining tale with excellent performances from three strong leads and more depth than might be expected from a heist comedy. If you haven’t seen it – or haven’t seen it in years – it warrants a revisiting. In fact, since I haven’t watched the film in a few decades, I’m off to dial it up on Amazon. Roll the trailer!
