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.
Death stalks members of the Sinclair family and it's up to Brett and
Daniel to find the murderer. While not a difficult whodunit to figure
out, the supporting cast makes this an enjoyable episode.
Ivor Dean, better know for his role of Inspector Claud Eustace Teal in The Saint, plays a minor role as the local undertaker. William Ruston, who had a role in "Those Magnificent Men and Their Flying Machines, is one of Brett Sinclair's eccentric uncles. Denholm Elliot, who played Marcus Brody in the Indiana Jones movies, plays Brett's cousin from Australia. Roger Moore helps to round out the supporting cast with portrayals of other members of the Sinclair line. His role as Brett's hard-of-hearing aunt is fun to watch.
