    Kind Heart and Coronets (Eagle-Lion, 1949). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Robert Hamer directs this black comedy starring Alec Guinness, who portrays a line of successors to a dukedom. Dennis Price plays the illegitimate son of the Duke D'Ascoyne's daughter, Duke Louis Mazzini. Louis vows to kill all of the people who stand between him and the duke's title. Consequently, Guinness dies eight times in the film, as he portrays each potential successor to the throne. Ealing Studios produced some great comedies in this period starring Alec Guinness. Some water staining, a tear in the upper border and some small staple holes. Very Good/Fine.
