Oscar winner Dame Helen Mirren, 74, and Jim Broadbent, 70, have joined forces for the filming. The pair together clocked up an astonishing 96 years in the film business

The Duke is set in 1961, when 60-year-old bus driver Kempton Bunton was accused of stealing Francisco Goya's portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London - the only theft in the institution's history.

Kempton sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly - he had long campaigned for pensioners to receive free television.
