Kind Hearts and Coronets

Dir: Robert Hamer, 1949, bw (8.7*)

Perhaps the best of the Alec Guiness comedies done for Ealing Studios, classic British black and white comedies (Man in the White Suit, Ladykillers, Lavender Hill Mob), all of which are worth seeing. This gives Alec a field day as he plays all the members of one family in a tontein, where the last survivor inherits all the familie's estates that participate. In this comedy, it's a race to survive all the plots and murders that are involved. Fluff, but as good as British comedic fluff gets.

About This Blog

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
