Great ExpectationsAlec Guinness’s first scene in his first film role is, aptly, a moment of introduction. As the boyish gentleman Herbert Pocket, he bounds up a flight of stairs to meet his new lodging companion, Pip (John Mills). Guinness captures Dickens’s description exactly, conveying “something wonderfully hopeful” about him: “He had not a handsome face, but it was better than handsome:...

Oliver TwistDavid Lean was puzzled when pale, young Alec Guinness asked to play Fagin, Charles Dickens’s grotesque old king of pickpockets, described in the novel as being shriveled and Jewish, with a “villainous-looking and repulsive face.” A screen test won Guinness the part, and the result, based closely on the text and illustrations, brilliantly presents Fagin as Oliver Twist sees him—funny...

Kind Hearts and CoronetsOne of Alec Guinness’s most celebrated cinema turns is among his most theatrical.

Guinness ups the fun by making some victims (like...

The LadykillersIn one his most inspired and fondly remembered comedy roles, Alec Guinness is a hoot as Professor Marcus, the ghoulish leader of a gang of disorderly robbers posing as a music quintet to fool their landlady (Katie Johnson) while they busy themselves farcically with crime. In a crowded field of very funny performances, Guinness both blends in and stands out, his funereal pallor,...
