Description

Kind Hearts and Coronets is a 1949 British black comedy film starring Dennis Price, Alec Guinness, Joan Greenwood and Valerie Hobson. Guinness famously plays eight members of the D'Ascoyne family. The plot is loosely based on the 1907 novel Israel Rank: The Autobiography of a Criminal by Roy Horniman, with the screenplay written by Robert Hamer and John Dighton and the film directed by Hamer. The film's title derives from Tennyson's 1842 poem Lady Clara Vere de Vere: "Kind hearts are more than coronets, and simple faith than Norman blood." Kind Hearts and Coronets is listed in Time magazine's top 100 and the BFI Top 100 British films. In 2011 the film was digitally restored and re-released in selected British cinemas.
