June 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the original UK release of Kind Hearts & Coronets, the jewel in the Ealing Studios crown, and to celebrate it StudioCanal are proud to re-release the film in a new 4K restoration, in cinemas from 7 June, and in a collector’s edition Blu-ray and DVD release as part of their Vintage Classics Collection on 24 June.
Hailing from the Golden Age of Ealing comedies, the film stars Dennis Price as Louis Mazzini, the would-be Duke of Chalfont whose late mother was disinherited by her noble family. Louis vows to avenge his mother and work his way up the family tree by killing off the eight successors who stand in his way – all of them played superbly by Alec Guinness.
The collector’s edition includes the restored film on Blu-ray and DVD, plus a booklet, art cards and a theatrical poster. Extras include Once More with Ealing – a brand new featurette featuring interviews with filmmakers discussing their love for Ealing and the legacy of Kind Hearts & Coronets.
Courtesy of StudioCanal we have five collector’s editions to give away.
The competition closes on Thursday 11 July 2019 and is open to UK residents only.
