Penelope (1966)

Not to be confused with the more recent film starring Christina Ricci, this one features Natalie Wood as a kleptomaniac wife of a banker who robs his bank in order to get some attention. Endearingly daft throughout, the final half-hour is inspired chaos and hilarious. Featuring an early performance by Peter Falk (yes, as a detective!), there are many reasons why this is an enjoyable film. It's not easy to get hold of, but if you get the chance, make sure you don't pass it up!
