Eight stylish pop art prints from the “The Ladykillers” & Ealing Comedies pop art collections by Art & Hue, featuring Alec Guinness credits.

Alec Guinness

If there’s one actor who’s most readily associated with the classic Ealing comedies, it’s Alec Guinness. He appeared in six Ealing comedies, playing multiple parts in two of them.

With a prestigious career in classical theatre, Guinness first Ealing comedy appearance is in 1949’s “Kind Hearts & Coronets” in which he played nine members of the D’Ascoyne family, who are being sequentially disposed of by Dennis Price‘s character.

In the same year, this was followed with a supporting role as a newspaper reporter in “A Run For Your Money“, another Ealing comedy which featured Joyce Grenfell.

The classic comedy “The Lavender Hill Mob” was to follow in 1951 co-starring Stanley Holloway, and with appearances by Sid James, John Gregson, & Audrey Hepburn.

That same year, Alec Guinness was reunited with his “Kind Hearts & Coronets” co-star Joan Greenwood in “The Man in the White Suit“, the tale of the inventive individual against vested interests. The film opened at the Marble Arch Odeon cinema in London on the 10th of August 1951.

In 1955, Alec Guinness returned to Ealing comedies with the cult film “The Ladykillers“, a much-loved classic that returned to the darker tone of “Kind Hearts & Coronets“.

Also starring Herbert Lom, Cecil Parker, Frankie Howerd, Jack Warner, Peter Sellers, & Kenneth Connor, it was to be Guinness’ penultimate film role for Ealing with his final outing in “Barnacle Bill” in 1957, which featured Jackie Collins before she became a world-renowned author.

Art & Hue had the pleasure to delve into the archives of the Ealing Comedies to create these stylish pop art prints, available in three sizes and many colour options.
