Kind Hearts and Coronets
with Alec Guinness, Dennis Price, Joan Greenwood, Valerie Hobson, Miles Malleson. 106 mins + trailers
Restored in sparkling 4K digital for its 70th anniversary, Robert Hamer’s classic black comedy stars the incomparable Alec Guinness as – famously – no fewer than eight members of the same family. Louis Mazzini’s (Dennis Price) mother belongs to the aristocratic D’Ascoynes, but when she eloped with his commoner father, was cut off from the family line. To achieve his goal of becoming the family’s next Duke, Louis must murder the eight potential successors (Guinness) who stand in his way – but complications arise when he becomes romantically entangled Edith (Valerie Hobson), with one of the widows of his victims. Can Louis stay the course and murder his way to a Dukedom?
