Alec Guinness plays nine (or ten, depending on how you count) roles as the various D'Ascoyne heirs (including a woman), and does them all very well, of course.
Charming little film, isn't it?

Hope this isn't the first time! If so, what took you so long?

I watched the "Director's Cut" of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.

Not that good. And too long. And every scene with Bob Dylan could easily be cut. But, boy, did it have a butt-load of name actors!
