Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949) Poster

Clive Morton: The Prison Governor


  • The Hangman : Even my lamented master, the great Mr. Benny himself, never had the privilege of hanging a duke. What a finale to a lifetime in the public service!

    Prison Governor : Finale?

    The Hangman : Yes, I intend to retire. After using the silken rope... never again be content with hemp.

  • Prison Governor : If I may venture to say so, I am amazed at your calmness.

    Louis Mazzini : Dr. Johnson was, as always, right when he observed, "Depend upon it, sir, when a man knows he's going to be hanged in a few hours, it concentrates his mind wonderfully."
