Two-Way Stretch, sometimes titled Nothing Barred, is a 1960 British comedy film, about a group of prisoners who plan to break out of jail, commit a robbery, and then break back into jail again, thus giving them the perfect alibi – that they were behind bars when the robbery occurred. However, their plans are disrupted by the arrival of a strict new Chief Prison Officer.

The film was directed by Robert Day from a screenplay by Vivian Cox, John Warren and Len Heath, with additional dialogue by Alan Hackney. The film boasts a rich cast of characters played by, among others, Peter Sellers, Wilfred Hyde-White, Lionel Jeffries and Bernard Cribbins.



The prison scenes were filmed at the West Cavalry Barracks at Aldershot, and the train robbery at Pirbright Arch in the village of Brookwood in Surrey.
