Slovenski opis filma:

Angleški film, 1949 Režija: Robert Hamer Scenarij: Roy Horniman, Robert Hamer Igrajo: Dennis Price, Alec Guinness, Valerie Hobson Britanija na začetku 20. stoletja. Vojvoda Louis D'Ascoyne Mazzini v zaporu čaka na obešanje in zapisuje spomine na dogodke, ki so privedli do njegovega nesrečnega položaja. Louisova mati, dedinja plemiške družine D'Ascoyne, je v mladosti pobegnila z opernim pevcem in si zaradi poroke zunaj svojega družbenega sloja prislužila razdedinjenje. Louisov oče je umrl kmalu po sinovem rojstvu. Čeprav njegova mati premožne sorodnike večkrat prosi za pomoč, jo slednji grobo zavračajo. Po njeni smrti jo prikrajšajo tudi za pokop v družinski grobnici. Louisa pograbi maščevalen bes in začne plesti zaroto proti sorodnikom, ki stojijo pred njim v liniji dedovanja. Brez usmiljenja umori vseh osem dedičev, da bi na svetu ostala le še on in družinsko premoženje. Satira Roberta Hamerja je bila oglaševana kot »študija nežne umetnosti umora«. Uživa sloves najboljše britanske črne komedije vseh časov. Njena posebnost je, da Alec Guinness odigra vseh osem morilčevih žrtev.

Originalni opis filma:

In prison awaiting execution the next morning Louis, the 10th Duke of Chalfont, sets down on paper the events that led him to his current situation. His mother has been banished from her family, the D'Ascoynes, after she married Louis' father who was considered far beneath her. After her death, the D'Ascoynes refused permission for her to be buried in the family crypt. Louis then plots his revenge - and kills all those ahead of him in the succession until he becomes the Duke. Along the way, he becomes involved with the married Sibelia who, when spurned, makes sure he ends up in prison. The day before his execution Sibelia recants her testimony saving him not only from the gallows but also sets him free. Once outside the prison however, he realizes he's forgotten one little thing........
