- Back in 793 AD, it was the site of the first recorded Viking raiding activity on the British Isles, and

As for the flick, despite its name it has nothing to do with suburban street layout. And despite its setting, it has nothing to do with monasteries or vikings. Released in 1967, it's an arty flick about a gangster on the lam after a botched heist who forces a mismatched married couple who live alone on an island to keep him company while he waits for Godot. Hilarity ensues.
