A classic of British cinema, hatched from Ealing's Golden Age, Kind Hearts & Coronets is the hilarious tale of a distant poor relative of the Duke of D'Ascoyne, who plots to inherit the title by murdering the eight other heirs who stand ahead of him in the line of succession. Oscar winner Alec Guinness (Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope) expertly portrays the eight unsuspecting members of the aristocratic D'Acoyne family - targeted one by one by outcast cousin Louis Mazzini (Dennis Price) who has a sinister grudge against the family. Desperate to avenge the honour of his dear departed mother, Louis will not stop until her position in the family is given the respect it duly deserves. In the wicked tradition of Ealing classics The Lady Killers and School For Scoundrels, Kind Hearts and Coronets is a genteel comedy of class and circumstance - a witty tale of outrageous revenge.
