Kind Hearts & Coronets is a film released in 1949 which starred Alec Guinness and Dennis Price.
In prison awaiting execution the next morning, Louis, the 10th Duke of Chalfont (Dennis Price), puts 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 eight of those ahead of him in the succession (all eight played by Alec Guinness) until he becomes the Duke. Along the way, he becomes involved with the married Sibella (Joan Greenwood) who, when spurned, makes sure he ends up in prison. The day before his execution, Sibella recants her testimony, saving him not only from the gallows, but also sets him free. Once outside the prison however, he realises he's left something rather incriminating in his cell......

The music is from Mozart's Serenade K.203 and the aria "Il mio tesoro" from Don Giovanni.
