Kind Hearts and Coronets
(Robert Hamer, 1949). A classic. This witty and bitter black comedy about the gentle English art of murder features Alec Guinness in eight different roles and was so successful it went a long way to establish the Ealing comedy as a commodity recognized and welcomed all over the world.
