At once a witty comedy of manners, a grotesque serial-killer caper and an acerbic satire on the class system.

Robert Hamer's 1949 film is often cited as the definitive black, eccentric British comedy, yet it's several cuts better than practically anything else in the genre.

Translation to a screen comedy has been effected with a mature wit.

It's a brilliantly cynical film without a hint of middle-class guilt or bitterness.

The sly and adroit Mr. Guinness plays eight Edwardian fuddy-duds with such devastating wit and variety that he naturally dominates the film.

Despite its murders and intrigues, its betrayals and blood feuds, Kind Hearts and Coronets has a dry and detached air.
