A Hilarious Studay In The Gentle Art of Murder

Sir Alec Guinness became an international star with his extraordinary performance as eight different characters in this 1949 Ealing Studios classic. Dennis Price (I'm All Right Jack, Private Progress) co-stars as Edwardian gentleman Louis Mazzini who plots to avenge his mother's death by seizing the dukedom of the aristocratic d'Ascoyne family. But to gain this inheritance, Mazzini must first murder the line of eccentric relatives who stand between him and the title, including General d'Ascoyne, Admiral d'Ascoyne, The Duke of Chalfont, Lady Agatha d'Ascoyne and four more, all brillantly portrayed by Guinness and leading to one of the most delicious final twists in comedy history.

Kind Hearts And Coronets was recently name as the #6 Best British Film Of All Time by the British Film Institute and remains the true peak of Guinness' acting genius.
