Directed by Robert Hamer
We're celebrating the Ealing Studios Films with a special day screening three of their best comedies, all of which were released 70 years ago in 1949. The final entry, Kind Hearts & Coronets, is perhaps their blackest film of all dealing with multiple murder...
Louis, the 10th Duke of Chalfont, writes his memoirs. In them he details how, though descended from nobility, he grew up poor and had to pull himself up by his bootstraps, career-wise. Then, discovering that only eight members of the D'Ascoyne family (all of whom are played by Alec Guinness) stood between him and the dukedom, he systematically started killing them, making the murders look like accidents.
