Once adult, Louis decides to avenges his mother and him, by becoming the next Duke of the family. Murdering every potential successor is clearly the safest way to achieve his goal.
Classic Ealing Studios.

A good film that shows the best of what was Ealing Studios. In a way, after seeing the film, made me miss what we had all those years ago. The magical script, even though a bit cringe worthy in some places, really adds to the clever story line.
If not a fan of 'classic british' films - then maybe not a good one to start off with - but if you have never seen many Alec Guinness films apart from Star Wars or lady killers.. then watch this. Really does show what a talented actor he was.
