From the classic Ealing Comedy “Kind Hearts & Coronets”, Dennis Price stylish pop art print.
Kind Hearts & Coronets
Regarded by many as the finest Ealing comedy, “Kind Hearts & Coronets” sees Dennis Price’s disowned character Louis Mazzini plot to kill off the entire D’Ascoyne family so he can inherit the dukedom.
“Kind Hearts & Coronets” was one of the most popular films of 1949 and, along with “Whisky Galore!”, “A Run For Your Money”, and “Passport to Pimlico”, all released in the same year within the space of seven months, helped to firmly establish the Ealing Comedies as a British cinematic institution.
“Kind Hearts & Coronets” opened at the Leicester Square Odeon cinema in London on the 23rd of June 1949, appropriately enough on Dennis Price’s birthday.
Starring Alec Guinness as all nine members of the D’Ascoyne family who stand in the way of Dennis Price’s goal, the film sees Louis Mazzini torn between the affections of Edith D’Ascoyne, played by Valerie Hobson, and his childhood friend Sibella, played by Joan Greenwood.
Art & Hue had the pleasure to delve into the archives for the Ealing Comedy “Kind Hearts & Coronets” to create this stylish pop art print of Dennis Price, available in three sizes and 19 colours.
