A reception in the museum galleries follows the screening

This comedy of epic proportions follows the story of a distant relative (Dennis Price) of the Duke of D'Ascoyne, who plots to inherit the title by murdering the eight other heirs (all played by Alec Guinness) standing ahead of him in the line of succession.
