But when Henry and his odd accomplice (Stanley Holloway) decide to melt the gold into souvenir Eiffel Towers to smuggle them into France, the result turns hilariously disastrous! "Kind Hearts And Coronets": Following his mother's death, Edwardian gentleman Louis Mazzini (Dennis Price) plots to avenge her by seizing the dukedom of the aristocratic d'Ascoyne family. To gain this inheritance, Louis must first murder a line of eccentric heirs to the title - all played brilliantly by Alec Guinness - in this delightful comedy named the Sixth Best British Film of All Time by the British Film Institute. "The Man In The White Suit": Guinness delivers one of his most beloved performances as Sidney Stratton, an eccentric chemist who one day invents a fiber that never wrinkles, wears out or gets dirty. However, when mill owners realize his invention will destroy their industry, Sidney suddenly becomes the most hunted man in the nation. "The Captain's Paradise": Henry St. James (Guinness) is the captain of an international ferryboat who secretly enjoys one wife in Gibraltar and another in Tangier. But when the captain becomes careless with anniversary gifts, his personal paradise sails into some uncharted territory! "The Ladykillers": Called "one of the greatest comedies ever made" (Entertainment Weekly), this black comedy showcases Guinness as Professor Marcus, mastermind of a gang of vicious bank robbers. The gang rents a room from an elderly widow who appears harmless, but when she begins to meddle in their "perfect crime," they realize she may pose the biggest threat of all.
