Summary
"Sir Alec Guinness performs as eight different characters in this classic. Edwardian gentleman Louis Mazzini plots to avenge his mother's death by seizing the dukedom of the aristocratic d'Ascoyne family. But to gain this inheritance, Mazzini must first murder the line of eccentric relatives [all portrayed by Guinness] who stand between him and the title ... leading to one of the most delicious final twists in comedy history."--Container
