Based on the same book as Kind Hearts and Coronets, but obviously built on the film in all that the law will allow. The plot follows Monty Navarro as he bumps off the D'Ysquith family in order to inherit the seat. All the D'Ysquiths are played by the same actor, as Alec Guiness did in the film.

The music is great and conjures up period England beautifully. But there are endless patter songs and the lyrics just aren't funny or good enough. I suppose it doesn't help that I know what's going to happen, and so I also grumble at the change to the ending.
