Today is my favorite actor's birthday!
Alec Guinness, born April 2, 1914, was one of the great English actors of the 20th century both on stage and in films. His diverse characters ranged from comedic villains to retired spies to WWII colonel to Arab prince to Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Guinness was capable of working within any genre and his versatility is best exemplified in the early Ealing Studios comedies, especially the darkly humorous Kind Heart and Coronets in which he plays eight (yes, that's actually an 8) different members of an aristocratic family that get knocked off one by one. If you're only familiar with Guinness through his roles in Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars, do yourself a favor and check out his wonderful films... I highly recommend The Ladykillers and The Lavendar Hill Mob, both of which are comedic crime capers about inept criminals.
Happy birthday, Sir Alec Guinness!
