KIND HEARTS AND CORONETS (1949) Louis Mazzini's mother belongs to the aristocratic family D'Ascoyne, but she ran away with an opera singer. Therefore, the D’Ascoynes rejected her and Louis. Once adult, Louis (Dennis Price) decides to avenge his mother and him, by becoming the next Duke of the family. Murdering every potential successor – all famously played by Alec Guinness - is clearly the safest way to achieve his goal. Running time: 106 mins PASSPORT TO PIMLICO (1949) When an unexploded WWII bomb is accidentally detonated in Pimlico, an area of London, it reveals a treasure trove and documents proving that the region is, in fact part of Burgundy, France and thus foreign territory. The British Government attempts to regain control by setting up border controls and cutting off services to the area. The film was nominated for both an Oscar and a BAFTA. Running time: 84 mins NICHOLAS NICKLEBY (1947) Based on Charles Dickens’ novel, Nicholas Nickleby tells the story of the eponymous hero and his attempts to escape the clutches of his greedy moneylender Uncle Ralph by joining a troope of actors. Staying true to the dark mood of the book, Ealing stalwart Alberto Cavalcanti conjures up a triumphantly atmospheric adaptation of the literary classic featuring great performances from Cedric Hardwicke and Derek Bond, who went on to star in several other Ealing classics. WENT THE DAY WELL? (1942) Based on a story by Graham Greene, Went The Day Well tells the story of an English village occupied by disguised German paratroopers setting up an advance post for the planned invasion. Running time: 92 mins
