Kind Hearts & Coronets 70th Anniversary Edition (DVD)
Alec Guinness stars in eight roles as the unsuspecting victims of their cousin’s revenge, in this vintage British Ealing Comedy classic. With Dennis Price and Joan Greenwood.
A combination of biting class satire, hilarious farce and pitch-black comedy, this wonderfully entertaining story of a suave and elegant serial murderer is as sharp and funny today as ever.
One of the British Film Institute’s 100 Best British Films of the 20th Century, this classic from the golden age of Ealing comedy stars Alec Guinness in no less than eight different roles as the various unsuspecting male heirs of the aristocratic D’Ascoyne family.
All eight stand in the way of renegade cousin Louise Mazzini (Dennis Price)’s accession to the title of Duke. So he murders them one by one until romance gets in the way.
This classic is arguably the jewel in Ealing Studios' crown, and arguably one of the finest British films ever made.
