Alec Guinness plays not one, not two, not four, but eight different roles in director Robert Hamer’s dark comedy Kind Hearts and Coronets. Dennis Price stars as a poor relative of the D’Ascoyne family who plots to murder the line of succession between him and the family’s fortune; Guinness plays the whole family. Produced in the vibrant period of post-World War II British filmmaking, the film takes a sharp, skewering glance at the stodginess and absurdities of highclass mannerisms. (2K DCP Presentations)
