Synopsis:
In the span of a career that began in the 1930s, Alec Guinness captivated audiences with each new role he played; almost immediately, he became known as "the man of a thousand masks." His performances ranged widely: Herbert Pocket in GREAT EXPECTATIONS, Fagin the pickpocket in OLIVER TWIST, the British colonel in BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI, which won him an Oscar. Such was his virtuosity that in KIND HEARTS AND CORONETS, he played eight different characters--both male and female. This photographic tribute richly documents the career of a master of disguise and the last of a heroic generation of actors.
