Bent on attaining the dukedom denied him by his ignoble birth, a draper’s assistant devotes himself to eliminating the estranged relatives standing in his way. Hamer’s glitteringly cynical script is beautifully served by superb performances all round (with Guinness playing all the offending d’Ascoynes), and with the constrictive Edwardian milieu impeccably designed and the fusty aristocratic manners sharply characterised, this is Ealing’s blackest comedy.
