Did You Know?


Terry Nation's script lifts significantly from Roy Horniman's novel "Israel Rank", filmed in 1949 as "Kind Hearts and Coronets". This is echoed in Roger Moore playing several roles, just as Alec Guinness did in the movie. See more »

The English toff and the American play it for laughs
25 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In this version of the classic film 'Kind Hearts and Coronets', members of Brett Sinclair's family are being murdered to stop them gaining the title of duke. But who is the killer?

Like the earlier film, this mystery is presented with a light touch. There are also some interesting demises for the relatives - one or two almost Shakespearean. Guest stars include Denholm Elliott, Willie Rushton, and in a nod again to the Ealing classic, Roger Moore plays his own elderly aunt.

With guns, poison, bombs, dummies, bagpipes and many other things featuring in the plot, this episode keeps you guessing and keeps you smiling. The odd couple of Moore as Brett Sinclair and Tony Curtis as brash American Danny works well, and the cast look as if they are having a great time.
