Alec Guinness as the Duke, the Banker, the Parson, the General, the Admiral, Young Ascoyne, Young Henry, and Lady Agathain in Kind Hearts and Coronets (Robert Hamer - 1949)

 It is so difficult to make a neat trump of killing people with whom one is not on friendly terms.

The most terrifying was undoubtedly the belligerent suffragette, Lady Agatha. This was the first time I had attempted to portray a woman, and although the part was not very taxing - being deliberately in terms of broad and shallow comedy - I do not feel, having completed the part, that my future on the screen lies in the direction of female impersonation.
