Kind Hearts and Coronets

1949, 106m

Roger Ebert lists Kind Hearts and Coronets among his "Great Movies", stating "Price is impeccable as the murderer: Elegant, well-spoken, a student of demeanor", and notes that "murder, Louis demonstrates, ... can be most agreeably entertaining"...Wiki. 

Alec Guiness plays eight different characters.

Alec Guiness is simply marvelous, but Price is also crucial for this great black comedy. "...It is so difficult to make a neat job of killing people with whom one is not on friendly terms."
