Ealing comedy at its blackest but wittiest. Dennis Price is in top form as the vengeful Louis Mazzini, who sets out to murder the eight members of the d’Ascoyne family standing between him and both a dukedom and a fortune. Alec Guinness, playing all eight of Mazzini’s targets (male and female), has a field day.
