Kind Hearts and Coronets
The inimitable Alec Guinness revels in multiple roles in this dark Ealing comedy.
Dir Robert Hamer
With Alec Guinness, Valerie Hobson, Dennis Price
The son of a disgraced aristocrat who married beneath her station decides to kill off the family members who stand between him and his rightful title. This gloriously dark Ealing comedy provides the opportunity for Guinness to shine as he plays each member of the family in all their eccentric splendour.
Plus we screen Dora Bryan in The Psychiatrist Sketch (BBC 1967, 7min).
