An impecunious heir eliminates eight D’Ascoynes who stand between him and the family fortune
A genteel mass-murderer is out to heartlessly crown the eight relatives standing between him and the family fortune.
In his greatest virtuoso performance, the late Alec Guinness plays all eight victims. Like his skilful brilliance in acting each different eccentric, Ealing Studio’s witty black comedy is regarded as without peer in the history of British cinema.
